Two woman are out of a place to live after a Tuesday afternoon fire claimed their mobile homes.
The fire started at Lot 12, 3414 Marathon Drive, around 3:20 p.m., said Columbus Fire Marshal Thomas Streeter. Judie Huff had been having electrical problems for a year, Streeter said, and it appeared her wiring shorted out.
"Lot 12 is a complete loss," Streeter said.
The blaze also destroyed Lot 16 — a trailer lived in by Norma Cortez, the chief said. While both mobile homes, valued at $5,000, were destroyed as were their belongings, no one was injured.
The power has been cut to the remainder of the mobile homes, except one, Streeter said.
