SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Multiple Smith County fire crews battled a structure fire Monday in the 16600 block of Echo Glen Drive.

Smith County Fire Marshal's Office, Tyler Fire Department, Bullard, Flint-Gresham, Jackson Heights, Whitehouse and Noonday volunteer fire departments all responded to the scene of a double-wide mobile home on fire. The home was located in a subdivision located on Echo Glen Drive.

According to officials, the fire was first reported around 10:27 a.m. Fire crews were able to get the fire under control at around 12:15 p.m. and the fire was completely put out shortly after, according to Smith County Assistant Fire Marshal Chad Hogue.

The intensity of the flames and another structure fire in the county led to a large firefighter presence in the area.

"We had two structure fires called in within about five minutes of each other, one down here and one [...] on the west side of the county," ESD2 battalion chief Kelcey Trotty said. "We called in additional help best as we could."

The mobile home was deemed a total loss.

There were no reported injuries.

An official at the scene said no one was home at the time of the fire and the cause remains under investigation.

The American Red Cross was also called to the scene.
