Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace was driving in the 9000 block of Mississippi Highway 3 at around 4:45 p.m. Thursday, when he noticed a large amount of smoke coming from a residence.
On closer inspection, Pace found a lawn mower on fire and smoke going inside the mobile home.
The Sheriff summoned the fire department and located a water hose, which he used to extinguish the fire.
The homeowner was asleep on the couch and unaware of the blaze.
Culkin and Northeast Firefighters responded as a precaution.
