Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX – Flames destroyed a mobile home Friday in an east Valley neighborhood where the neighbors have seen their share of fires.

A vacant house burned to the ground at Rancho Tempe Mobile Home Park near Priest and Baseline.

Firefighters from both Phoenix and Guadalupe responded to the scene to help. Crews were able to get the flames under control before they could spread to nearby homes.

Mike Reichling says, “These situations are very, very, very concerning to us because these are somewhat close together."

Investigators are looking into how the fire started. They say there are other vacant homes in the area that have also caught fire in recent months.
