Fire tore through a double-wide mobile home in Anza Thursday and ignited a small patch of vegetation before firefighters were able to gain the upper hand.

The non-injury blaze was reported at 11:06 a.m. in the 38000 block of Western Hills Road, north of Highway 371, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

Five engine crews responded and encountered the mobile fully ablaze. Several more engines and Cal Fire aircraft were summoned to assist crews on the ground as flames spread to surrounding brush.

Firefighters stopped the forward rate of spread within the hour, containing the brush fire to a 10-square-foot patch of vegetation, and fire officials canceled the call for additional resources, authorities said.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
