No injuries were reported in a Tuesday morning fire in Benner Township.

The call went out at about 9:50 a.m. for a structure fire along Butler Drive. Firefighters from Logan, Undine, Pleasant Gap and Alpha fire companies responded, battling a blaze that consumed about half of a mobile home in the Sunrise Mobile Home Park.

Neighbor Brock Hanscom said he awoke Tuesday morning to smoke coming from the mobile home. He was told by police to vacate his home in case the fire spread.

The owner of the mobile home, who asked not be identified, said she was at work at the time of the fire and had no idea how it started.

Fire crews had the blaze extinguished and were cleaning up by 11 a.m. Logan Fire Company Chief Walt Schneider said the state police fire marshal would be investigating the cause.
