A mobile home was completely destroyed by a late night fire in the Moores Mill community that displaced three women Saturday night.

Hazel Green Volunteer Fire Department Chief Steve Watson said his department along with Moores Mill and New Market responded to the fire at 10:22 p.m. in the 700 block of Billy D. Harbin Road.

Watson said the address shows up as Moores Mill on a map, but it's within the Hazel Green Volunteer Fire Department jurisdiction.

The three women living in the home were uninjured, but Watson said the home was a total loss. He said the women tried to initially put out the fire with an extinguisher, but were unsuccessful.

Watson said it appears the fire started in a bedroom near the back door, but the exact cause has not been determined. 

The majority of the fire was able to be put out fairly quickly, according to Watson, but crews stayed on scene until about 1 a.m. on Sunday morning to monitor and put out hot spots. 

The Red Cross is assisting the homeowners.
