PORTAGE (WKZO) -- The Portage Department of Public Safety responded to a report of a fire at 5101 Bernies Avenue on the city’s east side just after 6 a.m. Saturday and found a mobile home that had flames shooting out of the rear of the structure.

They were able to bring it under control after about half an hour, but not before the structure was heavily damaged and the family pet had been killed.

The occupants managed to escape before fire crews arrived. They are still trying to determine the cause of the fire.
