SPRING TOWNSHIP — Springboro Volunteer Fire Department is reaching out for the public’s help to aid one of its own members whose home was destroyed by fire.
Fire swept through Randy McAdoo’s mobile home at 7798 Peach Blossom Lane, about 2 1/2 miles north of Springboro, late Friday afternoon.
McAdoo was on his way home from work in Erie County at the time of the fire, Lloyd Allen, assistant chief of Springboro Volunteer Fire Department, said Saturday. McAdoo is staying with relatives, Allen said. Attempts by the Tribune to reach McAdoo on Saturday were unsuccessful.
“We think it was electrical,” Allen said of the cause of the blaze that was reported by McAdoo’s neighbors at 5:05 p.m.
Allen said McAdoo didn’t have insurance on the home.
“He said he didn’t want any (financial) help, but how can you not?” Allen said.
While no formal fund has been set up by Springboro Volunteer Fire Department, the department will accept donations on McAdoo’s behalf.
Conneautville and Albion volunteer fire departments assisted at the scene. Firemen returned quarters at 9:55 p.m. Friday.
Keith Gushard can be reached at 724-6370 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
