TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Firefighters responded to a mobile home fire Monday on the north west side.

Capt. Adam Goldberg with Northwest Fire tells KGUN9 that the fire was in the Rillito community south of Tangerine Road off Interstate 10.

The home was 75 percent involved when crews arrived.

Additional units were called because there was excessive debris inside and near the home, and there were no fire hydrants nearby.

The cause is still being determined by investigators and damages are estimated at $10,000.

There were no injuries to residents or firefighters.

A family that lived next door to the home did lose a significant amount of personal belongings. The woman and her three children knew the homeowner and kept some of their belongings in the home.

That family is being assisted by the red-cross at this time.
