Crews Respond To Second Mobile Home Fire In Skowhegan, Woman Hurt
For the second time in two days, a mobile home fire in Skowhegan has left a local woman with serious injuries, officials said.
Michelle Sweet, 53, was burned and suffered smoke inhalation while smoking on oxygen, said Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.
The fire at her Hilltop Drive home was reported at about 2 p.m. on Sunday.
Sweet was able to escape the blaze and was found outside near her car.
She was flown by the Lifeflight helicopter to Maine Medical Center in Portland.
On Friday, a woman and her 4-year-old son were seriously hurt in a mobile home fire on North Avenue. Andrea Curtis, 24, and her son, Tyler Curtis-Benson, were pulled from the home by a Skowhegan police officer. McCausland said the boy is showing signs of improvement, but "that is not the cause for his mother."
