FARMINGTON — An 86-year-old woman and her dog were rescued from their burning mobile home Friday morning by her son, a family member said.

There were no injuries, but Mary Hutchinson lost her mobile home at 187 Morrison Hill Road and all her belongings, Deputy Chief Clyde Ross of Farmington Fire and Rescue said.

Hutchinson was sitting in the living room at about 10 a.m. when she smelled a strange odor, looked down and saw the floor was on fire, he said.

Her son, Robin, who lives next to the home, got his mother and her dog out safely and called for help, according to one of Hutchinson’s daughters who also lives near her.

The cause of the fire is undetermined, Ross said, and there is no insurance on the home.

Hutchinson said she plans to live with family members. Her daughter said she’ll live with one of her 10 children.

Hutchinson declined help from the Red Cross, Ross said.

Firefighters from Farmington and Wilton battled heavy smoke and flames. A hydrant at the intersection of Voter Hill Road provided water, Ross said.

NorthStar Ambulance, Farmington police and Eddie Hastings of Chesterville Fire Department also helped, Ross said.
