Investigators say an electric heater may have sparked a fire that destroyed a mobile home in Gladwin County.

It happened Wednesday, Dec. 27 on Lakeshore Drive in Secord Township.

Firefighters told our affiliates at 9 & 10 News the fire started in a bedroom of the home. The family escaped the blaze and firefighters kept the flames from spreading to nearby homes.

Officials said the frigid temperatures did pose a major challenge to putting out the flames, though. 

The people who lived in the mobile home are staying with family for the time being, according to officials.
