Family of four homeless following mobile home fire today in Point Township

NORTHUMBERLAND - Four people are displaced after a mobile home caught fire near Route 11 in Point Township this morning.

Traci Bordner, 35, and her 3-year-old son Brayden Bingaman were watching cartoons at their home in Witmer's Mobile Home Park when she smelled smoke coming from the home's bathroom.

She went to see what was going on and saw flames, she said.

"I ran over to the neighbor's house and told them to call 911," she said.

Her fiance, Ryan Bingaman, 31, was also home and the trio was able to make it out safely. The couple also has a 10-year-old son.

Ryan Bingaman said the trailer was a severely damaged and the family will not be able to return to the home.

The fire was contained quickly and the home suffered smoke and water damage, said George Geise, a lieutenant with Tuckahoe Volunteer Fire Company. Geise would not estimate how much damage was done to the home.

The department isn't sure what caused the fire yet, but Bordner said it could either be the home's electrical system, which has been giving the family troubles recently, or a tart burner that was kept in the bathroom.

This is the second home the family has lost in the last decade, Bordner said. The family's previous home - located in the same mobile home park - burned down in the early 2000s, when candles caught the structure on fire, Bordner said.
