Smoke could be seen from the structure before crews arrived.

The fire was coming from the front of a trailer house, and crews were able to quickly extinguish the fire from inside the home.

RCFD firefighters then noticed a fire underneath the trailer, but took longer to put out due to its location. Crews had to cut through the floor to get to the flames.

No one was reported to be injured and the home is a total loss.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
