On Monday evening a single-wide mobile home was fully engulfed by flames in the town of Mills.

Fire crews were dispatched at about 5:37 p.m. to the 500 block of N. Second Avenue.

They discovered a nearby residence was also actively threatened.

Due to the large amount of fire in the trailer, crews immediately took a defensive stand.

One adult and one juvenile were transported by ambulance to Banner Health-Wyoming Medical Center for evaluation. Their injuries do not appear to be life-threatening at this time. This per a news release from the Mills Fire Department.

In total, three occupants of the trailer were displaced and are currently residing with family members living in the area.

Crews were hampered by a live power line that was on the ground after the fire burned
through the wire. No civilians or first responders were injured by the downed wire.

Rocky Mountain Power and Black Hills Energy responded to the scene to secure the utilities for responders.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation by the Natrona County Interagency Fire Investigation Task Force.
