WILDER – Three people were displaced after a fire damaged a mobile home in Wilder Monday morning, according to a news release from the Hartford Fire Department. 

Firefighters were called to the home at 22 Walnut St. around 6:45 a.m. after getting reports of a structure fire at the Olcott Falls Mobile Home Park. When they arrived, crews found the fire “venting from the building,” the release said.

Three members of a family who were living in the rental property were able to escape before firefighters arrived, and two of them were taken to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center for evaluation, the department said. 

Crews from Hartford, Lebanon, Hanover, Norwich, Pomfret and Hartland helped fight the fire, which was deemed under control at 9:07 a.m., according to the release. However, the damage was so extensive that the tenants weren’t able to return to the home, according to the department.

The cause is under investigation, according to the release.   

The home, which was built in 2000, is owned by Herb Foster of Wilder, and was valued at $36,600 prior to the fire, according to Hartford property records.
