A mobile home was destroyed in a Tuesday, Nov. 2, structure fire at 4920 Bay Dr. No injuries were reported, but two dogs perished in the fire.
The fire was reported at 11:09 p.m. Crews arrived to find fire coming out of the roof of the mobile home and most of the windows of the structure, according to Superior Fire Department Battalion Chief Camron Vollbrecht.
The occupants were safely outside, but reported that two dogs were still inside. Firefighters attempted to locate the dogs, but weren’t able to enter the home due to heavy fire and structural damage.
"They went around the exterior and attempted to open up the walls from the exterior because they couldn't safely come in the doors ... the roof was starting to collapse and the floors were in pretty rough shape," Vollbrecht said.

The fire was extinguished after about an hour, and crews remained on the scene until 2 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 3. The home and its contents were a total loss, estimated at about $100,000. The cause of the fire is under investigation. Vollbrecht said there is no indication at this time that it's anything suspicious.
The family of three was able to stay with friends, he said.
All three on-duty engine companies and an off-duty call back crew worked the fire. Additional off-duty firefighters serviced other emergency calls during the blaze. Mayo Ambulance, the Superior Police Department and Superior Water, Light, and Power assisted at the scene.
