  1. From the description of the fire and location, this sounds like a fire my department was called to on Sunday night, 7/9/17 at 10:36 pm. It was a mobile home and was totally involved when we arrived. Due to the total amount of destruction, we were not able to determine the cause of the fire. We spent 3 hours on the scene to be sure everything was out before we left.
