Fire, smoke damage part of home off U.S. 80

A Thursday morning fire destroyed part of a mobile home but caused no injuries.

No one was in the mobile home at 550 Heartwood Road, off U.S. 80, when the fire was reported, said Kelly Worthy, coordinator for the Warren County volunteer fire departments.

Neighbors reported the fire at about 9:16 a.m.

The fire, which destroyed about 25 percent of the home and caused smoke damage throughout, was extinguished by the Culkin and Bovina volunteer departments, along with a few additional volunteers from the Fisher Ferry volunteer fire department.

The cause remained under investigation, Worthy said.
