A fire early Saturday destroyed a double-wide mobile home in the 5500 block of Chocolate Drive in Sun Valley, the Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District reported.

The Northern Nevada Chapter of the American Red Cross is helping two adults displaced by the fire.

The fire was reported about 1:30 a.m. The cause is under investigation.

TMFPD said fire crews aggressively attacked the fire to keep it from spreading to other homes and from spreading to other vegetation.

A ruptured gas line and a fallen power line made combatting the fire more difficult, TMFPD said.
