A vacant mobile home caught fire Wednesday evening.

Around 8:45 p.m., dispatch received a call of a fire in a building at 6300 W. Tropicana Ave., near Torrey Pines Drive. Upon arrival, crews reported a fully involved, single-wide mobile home. Neighbors in the area reported that the mobile home was vacant.  

The incident commander chose to fight the fire defensively from the exterior due to heavy flames and instability of the floor of the home.
The fire was knocked down at 9:15 p.m. Crews remained on scene after the fire was out to prevent flareups.

Damage has not been estimated and the cause is under investigation.  

No injuries have been reported and no occupants have been reported as displaced.
