West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A blaze breaks out inside of a West Fargo mobile home early this afternoon.

Fire crews responded around 2:30 p.m. Thursday, to a fire that started in the enclosed patio of a home located at 1312 Starr Avenue.

They say they were able to put it out fairly quickly before it spread too far inside, or to other nearby mobile homes.

Neighbors tell us the man who lives there was not home at the time, and say they're lucky and thankful the flames did not reach too far.

Dell Sprecher/West Fargo Asst. Fire Chief: “We had a quick knock down on the fire right now and the external of the trailer was damaged a little bit and the interior just has smoke damage.”

Ann Sherrill/Neighbors: “We had just gotten home so this happened right after so who knows if we wouldn't have been home. Come home to this and we would've wondered what was going to happen with us. Very lucky, and he isn't home so that's also a good thing.”

Fire crews say they're still trying to determine the cause and notify the home-owner, who will have to stay somewhere else Thursday.
