One person made it outside safely Friday morning just before a mobile home went up in flames on the city’s north side.

Crews were called around 1 a.m. to 1123 of N.W. Starlite Circle on a report of a mobile home fire.

When firefighters arrived, they found the mobile home fully involved in flames.

The lone occupant of the mobile home had already made it outside safely.

Firefighters extinguished the blaze in about a half hour.

No injuries were reported. The mobile home was declared a total loss.

The cause of the blaze wasn’t immediately available.

According to the Topeka Fire Department, the fire resulted in a  $16,500 loss — $15,000 to the mobile home and $1,500 to its contents.

The location of the fire was in a mobile home park just west of N.W. St. John and Taylor.
