FARMINGTON — A husband and wife have been displaced from their Pierpole Road home by a fire that gutted the mobile home Sunday.

Fire crews from seven surrounding towns fought the fire at the home of Katrina and Joseph Wilde around 5:26 p.m. Flames could be seen shooting from the windows at one end of the home when crews arrived, Farmington Fire Chief Terry Bell said Monday.

One of the inhabitants was home at the time of the fire and called 911, though Bell was not sure whether it was the husband or the wife. No people were injured in the fire, though two cats are believed to have died in the fire, Bell said.

The fire is believed to have started when sparks from the home’s woodstove caught materials on the backside of the home. The homeowner became aware of the fire when a popping sound was heard coming from the back of the home, Bell said.

The fire moved quickly through the home, destroying the interior and damaging the exterior. Bell said the homeowners might be able to salvage some items from one end of the home, but he added that there is significant smoke and water damage throughout the home.

The home was not insured, Bell said.

Fire crews from Farmington, Wilton, Strong, Temple, Chesterville, New Vineyard and Jay worked to extinguish the fire using water and foam. The scene was cleared by 7:08 p.m., Bell said.

The American Red Cross responded to aid the couple Sunday night.

The Farmington Police Department and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office helped to conduct traffic control on Route 4, with which Pierpole Road intersects.
