A mother and son, David Wooten and Patricia Wooten, lost their home to a fire Saturday at 8:15 a.m.

A neighbor on Rock Road near Forest City reported the fire at the double wide mobile home. She saw flames coming out of the home and called for help.

The Wootens were out of town at the fire.

The fire is still under investigation, but one firefighter said the cause could have been electrical.

Rutherford County Fire Marshal Roger Hollifield and others talked with the Wootens on Saturday 

Assisting Hudlow were Cherry Mountain and Rutherfordton fire departments.
