Fire destroys Topeka mobile home

TOPEKA (KSNT)- Shortly after 7 p.m. on Saturday night Topeka Fire Department responded to a mobile home in the 700 block of Southeast Ridgeview Drive.

Nobody was inside the home at the time fire crews arrived. According to Topeka Fire Department Battalion Chief Eric Bauer the fire started near the middle back half of the home, “We’re assuming the fire started somewhere near the water heater, or furnace due to the charring near that area on the structure.”

Investigators are still determining the official cause, but do not believe any foul play is suspected. Chief Bauer, said the house is a total loss.
