According to Hinesville Fire Department Public Affairs Officer, Capt. Robert Kitchings the fire was reported shortly after 1 pm.  As fire units from the Hinesville fire department arrived flames could be seen shooting from the roof of the single family mobile home.  The occupant identified as Sarah Patterson and her children ranging in age from 4, 12 and 14 were not home at the time and no injuries were reported.
