Morning Fire Destroys Home In Columbus

Columbus, NE~~A Monday morning fire completely destroyed a mobile home north of Columbus.  The fire on 54th Street just north of Columbus was called in shortly before 11am.
Columbus Fire Lt. Dan Janicek says when crews arrived flames were coming out of the roof and the living room of the home was completely engulfed. 

No one was home at the time of the blaze.  The owner had apparently left about 20 minutes prior to the fire. 

Janicek says the home is a complete loss with estimated damages of over $6,000.  One pumper truck, one tanker truck and around 15 firefighters responded to the fire. 

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
