SAN JOSE (KCBS Radio) - A two-alarm fire destroyed a mobile home Sunday morning in San Jose, a fire captain said.

The fire was first reported at 8:50 a.m. Sunday by multiple callers living in the Magic Sands mobile home park at 165 Blossom Hill Road, Capt. Brad Cloutier said.

Firefighters who responded saw a column of smoke as they were on their way and when they arrived they discovered a sizeable outside fire that eventually spread inside a home.

Firefighters worked inside the home to extinguish the blaze but had to come out when it became unsafe, Cloutier said.

Firefighters evacuated the home as well as surrounding homes and no one was injured. Three adults were displaced. Cloutier said the American Red Cross is assisting the three.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. One neighboring home sustained heat damage but the residents of it won't be displaced.
