Saturday marked the fourth working structure fire call the Denver Fire Department (DFD) answered in the past two weeks.
Firefighters responded around 4:50 a.m. to a residence at 6169 Golden Oak Lane to find a vacant mobile home fully engulfed.
According to a press release from DFD, Fire Engine 10 first arrived on the scene seven minutes after being dispatched.
Assisting DFD were the Pumpkin Center Fire Department, with one engine and five firefighters, and the East Lincoln Fire Department, with one engine and two firefighters. DFD had nine firefighters responding to the blaze.
