Authorities say a mother and her baby were killed Tuesday morning, February 25th, in a mobile home fire at the Bridgeport Mobile Home Park off Dixie Highway in Bridgeport Township. The victims are 23-year-old Emilee Woodruff and her daughter, 10-month-old Autumn Wlock. Woodruff’s family said Emilee just learned she was pregnant.
Saginaw County Central Dispatch issued an alert just after 6:30 a.m. reporting the fire with occupants believed still inside. At one point Dixie Highway was shut down while firefighters battled the flames.
Bridgeport Township fire, Spaulding Township fire, and Michigan State Police responded to the scene.
Investigators say two mobile homes destroyed and a third was damaged by the fire. The Michigan State Police Fire Marshal Division is assisting in the search for a cause of the fire. A K9 team found no trace of accelerants in the mobile home.
