Fire destroys south side mobile home

A fire Friday night destroyed one mobile home, and threatened three others on Tucson's south side.

Tucson Fire Captain Barrett Baker tell Tucson News Now, several people called 9-1-1 to report the fire on the 1600 block of West Ajo near South Mission.

Capt. Baker says as crews approached the mobile home park, they saw heavy smoke and flames. Nearly three-quarters of the single-wide mobile home was on fire when crews arrived. A search of the home was impossible, due to the extent of the fire.

Firefighters worked to keep the flames from spreading to three other nearby mobile homes. 

After crews put out the fire, the property manager told them the mobile home has been unoccupied for about two years.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
