HILLSVILLE — Hillsville Fire Department volunteers responded to a fire in a mobile home court off Virginia 100 in Hillsville at about 3:15 Tuesday morning.

Neighbors reported the trailer had been mostly consumed at the time. They thought that the occupants of the mobile home were still moving in at the time.

With help from Laurel Fork Fire Department, emergency personnel put out the blaze, remaining on scene for more than an hour.

The owner of the trailer is Emory Bearden, HFD members said. The names of the people moving in were not known.

No one was injured in the incident.

Firefighters did not know what started the blaze.
