WOODLAWN — Firefighters from several area departments were called to a mobile home fire in Woodlawn shortly after 9 a.m. Monday.

The mobile home, located in the West Haven Mobile Home Park west of Woodlawn High School, was considered a total loss. The cause of the blaze is unknown at this time.

Woodlawn, Waltonville, Irvington and Jefferson Fire Protection District all responded to the fire. Flames were showing when Woodlawn firefighters arrived and the mobile home was full involved when JFPD personnel arrived.
