RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Reno Fire Department is investigating a mobile home fire that broke out early Wednesday morning.

The battalion chief says the call came in around 5:55 a.m. and crews were called to the Panther Valley RV Park on Newport Lane.

Crews arrived to find flames coming from one half of the mobile home, and no one was inside. The fire was quickly put out, reportedly in a matter of minutes.

According to the battalion chief, the owner of the trailer escaped the home before any serious damage was done, and was transported to Renown for partial burn injuries to their upper body.

Investigators say the flames damaged the back-end of the trailer where the bedroom sat, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation
