A fire Thursday morning destroyed a single wide mobile home at 157 Cecil Hale Road.
The fire was reported to central dispatch at 8:52 a.m.
The home belonged to Comer Bratcher but Geronimo Soto lived there. Soto was at work when the fire started but was notified at the local nursery where he is employed.
A neighbor and a passing motorist spotted the fire. It was then reported to 911.
Members of the Short Mountain Highway, Blue Springs, and Main Station responded along with the tanker truck of the DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department.
County Fire Chief Donny Green said the fire started in a bedroom but the cause is undetermined. Soto lost most of his belongings in the fire.
