Mobile home fire leaves family without a home

A couple and their two children are left without a home after a fire swept through their mobile home early Tuesday morning.
It happened around 2:00 a.m. at American Estates Mobile Home Park in Flint.
Mutual aid was called in to help.
"If we'd been sleeping I don't think we would have made it out in time," said Josh Davis, who had just moved his fianceÃ© and two young children to Flint from Nashville, Tennessee.
Monday was supposed to be their first night in a new home.
"There goes my new life up in flames," added Claudia Wilson, Josh's fianceÃ©.
The American Red Cross is providing the family bare essentials like diapers and a hotel room for the next few days.
Just minutes before the mobile home fire, Flint firefighters were called out to a fire on Concord.
Fire officials say no one was home at the time.
The cause of both fires is under investigation.
