Infant Safely Out Of Mobile Home Fire

Infant Safely Out Of Mobile Home Fire
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A Sioux Falls mother credits smoke alarms for saving her and her infant son’s lives.

Crews were called to an Eastside mobile home park just before 3:30 p.m. Friday afternoon.

“All I heard was fire alarms. I told him to go look, he yelled to get out,” Tasha Posey said.

Posey may have lost almost everything. But her most important possession is in her arms.

“He's stopped crying because he's with mommy,” Posey said.

Posey's three-week old son, Antonio, was with her in a back bedroom when the flames spread. Officials say it all started on an outside deck. 

“Once that fire got in the attic, it spread clear across the top of the structure and that's why the roof is off obviously,” Sioux Falls Fire Rescue Captain Bob Vosburg said.

Vosburg said the high winds fanned the flames. Firefighters stayed around to put out hot-spots and try to find salvageable items.

“I just got his pictures done and those are gone now,” Posey said.

And while replacing those items is not an easy thought, the best news remains what was saved.

“Yes,” she said. “I have my son, which is a miracle. It's amazing.”

Two firefighters did have minor injuries while fighting the fire. The exact cause is still under investigation.
