Around 1:00 a.m. Monday morning the Rochester Fire Department responded to a report of an explosion at a mobile home on 1701 10th Street Southeast. Gold Cross Ambulance also responded. 

Rochester Fire says when they arrived they found skirting at the bottom of the mobile home and found fire extending from the bottom of the mobile home into the wall space directly above it.


Fire officials say when they arrived the family of five had already evacuated.  None of them were injured.

 A hose line was used to extinguish the fire and cool the surrounding area. Fire Captain captain Kirk Weber says there is about $10,000-$12,000 worth of moderate damage to the underside and exterior wall of the mobile home.
