    A fire destroyed a mobile home and displaced three adults Wednesday afternoon in Monroe.

    Crews responded after 3 p.m. to a report of a residential fire in the 12100 block of Wagner Road.

    When firefighters arrived at the scene, they found a mobile home that was fully involved.

    Firefighters were not able to use a fire hydrant because of the rural road and long driveway. Crews had to pull a 700-foot hose along the driveway.

    As crews worked to put out the fire, the home's metal roof collapsed, making it difficult for firefighters to extinguish the flames.

    Crews were able to gain access into the home and put out the fire.

    The home was destroyed.

    No one was inside the home during the time of the fire but fire officials said four pets inside the home died.

    The American Red Cross is assisting the three adults who lived in the home.

    The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
