A fire destroyed a mobile home Friday morning on the southwest side.

Drexel Heights Fire District firefighters were called to the home in the 7700 block of S. Cardinal Avenue, south of West Los Reales Road, for a fire that began underneath the home near the hot water heater.

The resident and her two dogs were able to get out safely.

High winds helped spread the fire, which destroyed the home. Fire crews were able to keep the fire from spreading to other homes.

There were no reported injuries.

The two adults who lived at the home were displaced and are being assisted by the American Red Cross.

Comments disabled.
