THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) - Firefighters responded to a mobile home fire off U.S. Hwy 319 North near Coolidge.

Crews were called to the Best for Guest mobile home park around 4 p.m. Tuesday.

According to a report, one mobile home caught on fire.

A neighbor said they smelled smoke and called firefighters.

Officials said they saw heavy smoke and flames pouring out of the home when they arrived.

No one was home at the time and no injuries were reported.

It took three engines and a tanker to put out the flames.

Thomas County Fire Chief Chris Jones said, "This is a non-hydrated area so we requested a tanker to come in for additional water.  That also allows for our last engine in to respond to additional calls if need be."

The State Fire Marshal's office is now investigating.
