WILCOX (KGUN9-TV) - A young girl suffered burns on her leg after her family's trailer caught fire Monday afternoon. 
 
Firefighters with the Willcox Fire Department and Willcox Rural Fire responded to a trailer fire in the 3000 block of Wadsworth Road at around 4:45 p.m. Monday, according to Carol Capas with the Cochise County Sheriff's Office. 
 
Capas tells KGUN9 that Cochise County deputies also responded to the fire. 
 
Once all crews were on scene, they learned that the living room of the trailer was fully engulfed in flames, resulting in a total loss of the trailer, Capas said.
 
Two adults and three children were inside the trailer at the time of the fire and one female child had to be taken to the hospital for treatment of burns on her leg, according to Capas. 
 
Capas says investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the fire, and the American Red Cross has responded to assist the family with shelter and clothing.
