County Fire Marshall Russell Greene said that the rental unit was unoccupied at the time of the fire. The two people who live there were at work. The mobile home is a total loss. Greene says the investigation is underway but it appears the fire might have started in the kitchen area. A neighbor noticed the flames and called 911. The Red Cross is assisting the residents.
