Capt. Joe White with the West Valley Fire Department says, "Trailer fires usually burn very hot and quick because of the type of construction they are."

The family of five adults and two children made it out of the mobile home safely. One of the adults was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Crews say the home is a complete loss. Two nearby vehicles also were damaged.

No word on what caused the fire.
