Investigators have determined that faulty wiring caused Tuesday’s blaze at a Windsor trailer park.

Three people were rescued by firefighters when their mobile home caught fire overnight Tuesday.

Firefighters were called to Marlin Court at the Countryside Village trailer park near Home Depot around 2:45am and found the home engulfed in flames. Emergency crews got word of people trapped in the home and quickly made a rescue.

Two children and their mother were rescued from a window on the west side of the home by responding firefighters.

EMS rushed the children and the mom to the hospital.

Deputy fire chief Brian McLaughlin said the blaze appears to have started on the east side of the home, and spread quickly.

McLaughlin said the mother had been listed in critical condition, but was downgraded to stable condition and is in the intensive care unit being treated for smoke inhalation.

The two children were treated for first degree burns and minor smoke inhalation and were released late Tuesday.  The mother remained in hospital as of Wednesday afternoon.

Three firefighters also suffered minor injuries during the blaze.

Damage is set at $10,000.
