A mobile home in the 3500 block of Nicholson Road, near Bird Hill, was destroyed by fire about 6:30 p.m. Sunday, according to the state fire marshal.

The blaze, which caused $5,000 damage, apparently started in the center of the 8-foot-by-30-foot trailer and was discovered by a neighbor, who saw a glow in the sky in the vicinity of the house, fire officials said.

The approximately 30 firefighters who responded remained at the scene for two hours and 45 minutes.

Deputy State Fire Marshal Charles Adams is investigating.
