Crew members from the city's volunteer and paid fire departments responded to an early morning structure fire in the 3000 block of Airport Road Thursday.

According to reports, the single-wide mobile home was about 30 percent involved in flames when firefighters arrived on the scene at 1:42 a.m.

With smoke venting from the home's windows and eaves, crews attacked the fire from the outside until they could enter, according to Mineral Wells Fire Department sources.

Upon investigation, firefighters determined the likely ignition source was a heater in one of the residence's bedrooms.

Residents were in the home when the fire started, according to reports, but no one was injured.

Firefighters remained on the scene until about 4 a.m.
