A Pirtleville family of six had their lives turned upside down Sunday when a fire destroyed their rented mobile home.
When emergency officials arrived on the scene they found the front of the trailer engulfed in flames.
It took crews just a few minutes to knock down the flames but in that time the damage to the single wide mobile home was extensive.
Pirtleville Fire Chief Tony Vaca and Douglas Fire Chief Mario Novoa both said later the trailer was a “total loss”.
The mobile home was being lived in by a single mother and her five kids who were checked out at the scene by local paramedics and released.
The Red Cross from Sierra Vista was called in to help the family.
Chief Vaca would later confirm the fire started outside of the mobile home and then moved to the trailer.
Six fire trucks, two ambulances and two support vehicles were on the scene to battle the blaze.
It is not known if the landlord had insurance on the mobile home.
