LAIRDSVILLE – One man was left homeless following Wednesday night’s fire that caused an estimated $50,000 damage to his mobile home on Old Lairdsville Road, according to Lairdsville Fire Chief Glen Temple.

The sole occupant and homeowner, whose name was not released, safely escaped the fire that involved his kitchen and living room in the 2700 block of Old Lairdsville Road, Temple said.
