DES MOINES, Iowa — A fire at a mobile home park overnight forced several people out of their homes.

The fire started just after 11:00 p.m. Thursday in the 100 block of Alpine Drive. That’s in West Des Moines’ Western Village mobile home park.

Flames and smoke broke out in one mobile home, forcing fire crews to evacuate people inside the homes nearby.

Crews were on scene for multiple hours fighting flames. Neighbors were able to return to their homes after the fire was put out.

The person who lives in the mobile home was at work when the fire started.
