SUPERIOR — A Superior woman's mobile home was declared a total loss after a structure fire late on the afternoon of Wednesday, Feb. 15.

Superior Fire Department personnel were called to the 3100 block of East Fifth Street at approximately 3 p.m. due to a report of visible smoke and flames from an occupied mobile home, according to a news release.

The lone occupant was able to get out of the home safely with her pets after being alerted to the fire by a smoke detector. She is being assisted by family members.

The home was declared a total loss due to heat and smoke damage throughout, but neither the resident nor firefighters were injured.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Superior fire and police departments.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
