Hampton Township Fire Rescue responded at around 12:06 p.m. to a reported electrical fire at a mobile home on Deerfield Drive located within the Carriage Acres mobile home park, according to a post on the Hampton Township Fire & Rescue’s Facebook page.

Fire crews arrived on scene and observed smoke coming from the structure with a report of someone possibly still inside.
