HARRISON, TN (WRCB) -

A mobile home fire Wednesday sent the Highway 58 Volunteer Fire Department to Anderson Acres Drive.

Since the mobile home was unoccupied, firefighters worked to keep the fire from spreading into the nearby dry terrain. 

The homeowner told fire officials they were in the process of tearing down the mobile home and they were having difficulties removing the shingles.

They decided to burn the shingles off the structure, but the fire got out of control. 

No injuries were reported. 

Fire officials reported this mobile home had burned four years ago, the mobile home had not been torn down since that fire. 

The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene to interview the homeowners.
