No one was hurt after firefighters quickly put out a mobile home blaze that broke out Wednesday night in north Napa.

At 5:01 p.m., the Napa Fire Department sent four engines to Miller’s Mobile Home Park at 3130 Jefferson St. after receiving reports of a unit on fire, according to Operations Chief John Callanan.

Arriving about 4 1/2 minutes later, crews found an exterior fire that had spread into the left side of a single-wide mobile home, he said. Neighbors said flames briefly shot about feet from the roof of the single-wide home, but firefighters contained the blaze after 10 minutes, Callanan reported.

The extent and cost of the damage were not immediately available. Blackened outer panels were visible on the rear left of the single-wide 20 feet behind the front door, and the fire also left a metal canopy charred and partly collapsed at one end.

A woman living in the home had left for an errand about two hours earlier, and no one was inside when the blaze started, firefighters reported. The cause remained under investigation Wednesday night.

Callanan said fire crews were searching for a pet that was missing from the mobile home.
