MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A mobile home was destroyed in a fire Thursday morning in northwest Miami-Dade, authorities said.

The fire was reported at 1:20 a.m. at 3620 NW 30th Ave.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokeswoman Erika Benitez said the mobile home was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived.

She said downed power lines just west of the trailer made the operation especially dangerous for crews.
