TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Two northwest side mobile home residents are displaced following a Saturday afternoon fire.

Northwest Fire District firefighters responded to a mobile home fire in the 4500 block of North Old Romero Road just after 2 p.m. today, according to a news release.

Crews arrived to find a single wide mobile home well involved in fire. Initial crews focused their attention on ensuring no occupants were trapped as well as keeping the fire from spreading to adjacent trailers. The occupants were not home at the time the fire broke out.

The first engine arrived within five minutes and entered the trailer to conduct an interior search. Additional arriving companies arrived and stretched additional hose lines around the trailer to protect them from the fire. Crews were successful in keeping the fire from spreading to any of the neighboring trailers.

The fire was brought under control within 25 minutes of the arrival of the first engine.

The occupants arrived home after the fire was out and are now being assisted by the Northwest Fire District's Community Assistance Team.

Fire investigators have determined the cause of the fire was electrical in nature from the attic space. Damage estimates including the mobile home and its contents are valued at $15,000.
