Overnight fire destroys mobile home

Posted: Updated:

A family was displaced and a firefighter was hospitalized after a fire breaks out inside a mobile home near 31st Avenue and Van Buren.

Crews were called to the scene just after 2 a.m. Tuesday and when they entered the home to fight the blaze, one firefighter was somehow shocked by loose electrical wiring.

He was transported to an area hospital to get checked out.  His condition is not known at this time.

The family living in the home was able to get out safely, but the home is a total loss.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
