A firefighter from the 7th District Fire Department controls hot spots Thursday morning at a fire that destroyed this mobile home at 39454 Hwy 74 Gonzales.

Firefighters arrived at the scene to find a fully involved fire, and fought the blaze for about two hours. Gerald Blair and his wife learned of the fire at their house from a phone call while they were at St. Johns Evangelist Church in Prairieville.

Gonzales Fire Chief Tracy Normand said the cause of the blaze had yet to be determined. Geismar and St. Amant firefighters also responded to the scene.
