A fire destroyed a mobile home Wednesday night in Hinesville.
According to Hinesville Fire Department Capt. Chris Moss, the fire began around 10 p.m. on Kelly Drive.
When firefighters arrived, the home was engulfed in flames.
As crews brought the fire under control, they had to pull out of the residence because the roof began to collapse.
The owner of the home, Travis Wells, had left an hour before the fire started. His roommate, who works for Georgia Forestry, was fighting a brush fire in Long County.
There were no injuries reported. The fire was under control in about 40 minutes.
Lt. Earnest McDuffy, an investigator with the Hinesville Fire Department, said authorities suspect the blaze was an electrical fire that may have started in the home’s laundry room.
