REDCREST- A fire destroyed a mobile home and two other buildings Tuesday night in Redcrest.

The fire occurred in the 2-hundred block of Johnson Lane.

Fire officials say the fire began in the mobile home and then spread to the other buildings.

It took crews four hours to put out the flames as they worked to prevent the fire from spreading to the surrounding vegetation.  

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
