PONTOTOC COUNTY, Okla. -- Around 4:00 a.m. Saturday morning, Deputy Brent Rhoads was patrolling an area near Ada when he saw heavy smoke and fire coming from a mobile home on SH 3W.
Rhoads ran to the front door of the mobile home where he finally made contact with the owner, Sean Keeling, who was unaware of the fire at the time. Keeling’s wife and three children were also inside the home at the time but made it out safely.
Both the Ada Fire Department and the Oil Center Volunteer Fire Department assisted.
A defective vent pipe connected to an inside wood burning stove is to blame.
The home only suffered minor fire and smoke damage.
