BRADLEY -

A mobile home in the Twin Oak mobile home park burned in a Sunday afternoon fire.

The home is located on North Sand Branch Road in Bradley.

No one was injured in the fire, but neighbors said they were upset when Bradley-Prosperity Volunteer Fire Department did not show up because they were playing bingo.

BPVFD Public Information Officer Bobby Palmer said they were playing bingo but the reason they didn't respond is because they did not have enough trained, certified fighters available.

He said the department does have certain firefighters who are on standby but they didn't have enough Sunday to properly respond.

Dispatchers said fire fighters from Pax, Beaver and Mount Hope responded just before 3 p.m. on March 24.

The fire was cleared at 4:30 p.m.

No word yet on what caused the fire.
