Rutherfordton firefighters were dispatched to a house fire on Whiteside Road in Rutherfordton Monday evening.

Ronald Starnes, who was currently living in the single-wide trailer with his daughter, called in the fire around 8:39 p.m.

The house is owned by Tammy and Chris Henson, and when firefighters arrived at the scene 75 percent of the structure was fully engulfed in heavy flames.

Firefighters from Spindale and Hudlow assisted with the call, and the initial cause and origin of the fire is yet to be determined.

There were no injuries reported from the fire.
