Lake Rayburn firefighters worked to extinguish a fire that destroyed an old abandoned mobile home Thursday afternoon. The blaze was reported shortly after 1:00 on Private Road 6061, just northwest of the intersection of County Roads 227 and 227-A in Brookeland.

When firemen arrived, the structure had already collapsed.

The mobile home, which had no electricity running to it, sat on the side of a steep hill and it had been in place for so long that large trees were grown all around it.

No one at the scene knew who the property belonged to, and the cause of the fire was unknown.
