Fire ravages mobile home in Dripping Springs

No one was injured early Tuesday after a fire ravaged a mobile home along Miller Lane in Dripping Springs.

According to North Hays County Fire Chief Scott Collard, the occupant of the home called 911 around 4 a.m. Tuesday regarding a garage with smoke and flames showing.

When emergency units arrived, they discovered the garage was enveloped in fire and that it had spread into the home.

“Our crews determined that all occupants were out and accounted for and (they) attacked the fire inside of the house,” Collard said.

Approximately 30 firefighters with 13 apparatus responded to the scene. The Buda Fire Department provided mutual aid assistance, while the San Marcos Hays County EMS provided rehab services and monitored the safety of firefighters.

The Red Cross is currently assisting the displaced family.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. Collard said the home is close to a total loss.
