The Dunlap Fire Department says on its Facebook page that a family is getting help and looking for a new place to live after their mobile home burned on Friday. No one was hurt.

A post on the department's Facebook page says crews arriving on the scene just before 6 p.m. found the home engulfed in flames.

Firefighters say they used two attack lines to quickly extinguish the fire.

The American Red Cross was also contacted to help the family displaced by the fire.

The following day, Saturday, Chief Norman Hatfield and Firefighter Dan White met with the family and provided them with disaster care packages, that were put together and provided to the department by Girl Scout Troop #40505.

The department also provided stuffed animals to the children who lost their own toys in the incident.

There's no word on the fire's cause.
