BOISE -- One family is cleaning up after a fire destroyed their mobile home Saturday afternoon.
The Boise Fire Department responded to a trailer fire near Overland and Curtis. When they went into the trailer, they found a gas line feeding the fire.
Firefighters got the gas line under control, then took the fire out.
"The problem with natural gas when it's burning, like in the case of this fire is, is it's uncontrolled," said Steve Rasulo with the Boise Fire Department. "If we were to extinguish that fire, the gas would then continue to fill the structure with the gas vapors, which could then reignite."
The American Red Cross said there were two adults and their three children living in the home. There were concerns about smoke inhalation and the family was checked out by paramedics. They were not taken to the hospital.
The Burnout fund and the Red Cross are helping the family. The Red Cross called the trailer a total loss.
None of the neighboring trailers were damaged.
Firefighters don't yet know what caused the fire.
