Windows exploded and smoke billowed from a doublewide mobile home as East Pierce Fire and Rescue crews converged on the scene at 4:13 a.m. Wednesday.

Initial reports were that a large family lived in the home on the 21800 block of 130th Street East, in Prairie Ridge. However, neighbors told firefighters that the family had recently moved.

The firefighters fought hard to protect a nearby residence, using defensive tactics to battle the blaze. “It was unsafe to go inside,” said East Pierce Battalion Chief Rick Goetz. “Eventually, they got in to do a search and found nothing.”

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. According to the Pierce County Fire Marshall, the home is a total loss. No injuries were reported.
