Forty-year-old Barry Taylor and his girlfriend Mary Dorris were inside of the double wide at the time of the fire.

As for the cause of the fire, it's still under investigation by the Bay County Sheriff's Office. Mr. Taylor is being treated and monitored at a local hospital and his condition is unknown at this time.
