A couple and their two grown sons lost their trailer home in a fire shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday.
Steve Rutherford, Sequoyah County Emergency Management director, said Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Looper and their two grown sons lost their mobile home in the fire. Rutherford said the Red Cross and Catholic Charities was able to provide the family with items to help with their immediate needs.
Sallisaw Fire Chief Anthony Armstrong said the fire was in the Central Fire District, and the responding fire departments included Central, Sallisaw, Gans, Muldrow and Maple.
Armstrong said, “It appeared to be an older mobile home with an addition. It was completely destroyed.”
Armstrong added that the owner said there had been problems with the home’s electricity.
The home was at 109399 S. 4688 Rd., north of Joyce’s Produce on U.S. Highway 64, between Sallisaw and Muldrow.
Anyone wishing to donate clothing, household items or cash can contact the couple's daughter, Vera Looper Martin, at 918-315-1767.
