Fire destroyed a doublewide mobile home in northeast Forsyth Wednesday morning. The home on Mathis Drive, near Jot Em Down and Browns Bridge roads, likely will be a total loss due to the fire damage, according Forsyth County Fire Division Chief Jason Shivers. “[A 15-year-old girl] woke up to a smoke-filled home and could not make access to the home telephone,” Shivers said.
