HELENA - Emergency crews are on the scene of a mobile home fire off Hope Road north of Helena.
Residents of the home were awakened by a neighbor who pounded on their door after he noticed the home was on fire.
All five people and their dog were able to evacuate safely, and no injuries have been reported.
Crews from several volunteer departments responded to the call which came in at 7:30 a.m. with West Valley Assistant Fire Chief Dave Quick saying it appears the blaze started in the kitchen.
One resident of the home said the trailer has a wood stove but it was probably out by morning.
She said they had company from out of town who were sleeping in the living room, adding she's grateful for her neighbors quick response as they were all able to get out.
The cause of the fire is not yet known.
