An elderly man was using a propane torch to thaw his pipes Tuesday evening when he caught his mobile home on fire.
The fire at 4100 N. Romero Road, just south of Wetmore Road on the northwest side, happened around 5 p.m.
The mobile home was a total loss, Northwest Fire Capt. Adam Goldberg said.
Northwest Fire's community assistance team was assisting the man, Goldberg said.
