A Cole County mobile home was destroyed in a Thursday morning fire.

The fire in the 4100 block of Crim Court was reported around 8:20 a.m., according to Cole County Fire Protection District reports.

The structure was engulfed in flames when fire crews arrived. Flames were nearing a neighboring mobile home, but firefighters were able to keep the flames from reaching it. The fire was under control in about 30 minutes.

Because of the extent of damage, fire officials are listing the cause as "undetermined." Officials added that nothing found would make them believe there was anything suspicious about the fire.

The family who lived in the mobile home got out safely, and there were no injuries while the fire was being fought.

The American Red Cross is assisting the family.
