SUPERIOR — Fire crews responded to a mobile home fire at 4920 St. Croix Drive at 12:29 a.m. Wednesday.

According to a news release from the Superior Fire Department, the home was engulfed in flames with fire pushing through its roof and windows. Neighbors informed officials the occupants of the home might have been inside.

Superior police officers located one of the residents, who was staying with a family member. The fire department is conducting a search, but could not confirm Wednesday morning if there was anyone in the home. No firefighters were injured.

Crews attempted to enter the home but were forced to fight the fire defensively due to "heavy fire involvement and structural damage." They remained on the scene until 3:30 a.m.

The home and its contents were deemed a total loss, with an estimated $50,000 in damages. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
