EUGENE, Ore. -- Fire crews responded to a reports of a mobile home fire near Kintyre Street in West Eugene on Sunday around 4:15 p.m.

Officials report finding the exact location of the blaze was difficult after multiple calls reporting smoke from various areas came in.

When crews arrived, they found an illegally parked mobile home on fire. Flames eventually spread to nearby brush that surrounded the area. Officials said the mobile home is a total loss, but no injuries were reported.

There was also damage to a fence at a nearby pasture, officials said. Several sheep escaped the pasture through the damaged fence, but crews said they wrangled them back.

They said the fire was caused by humans, but no one was inside the mobile home when crews arrived.

Businesses in the area told fire officials the mobile home had been abandoned for about a month, but people occasionally slept inside.

The fire was initially reported as a vehicle fire, but was later upgraded to a mobile home fire.

Crews began vacating the scene around 6:30 p.m.

Officials on the scene said there is no ongoing threat to the community.

There was also concern about protecting a bird's nest located on top of an electrical pole.

13 different agencies responded to the fire, according to the fire marshall.
