Crews battle brush fire, mobile home fire in Frostproof

- A brush fire claimed a mobile home just across the roadway around Reedy Lake in Frostproof.

Crews said an RV and a semi trailer also burned. 

Firefighters were dispatched to 1870 Lake Reedy Boulevard S just after 5 p.m. Wednesday. Law enforcement has blocked Lake Reedy Blvd. S while firefighters battle the blaze.

The fire was out by about 6:30, but crews stayed on the scene to make sure there were no more flare-ups. They didn't know if anyone was living in the mobile home. 

Investigators were trying to figure out if this was a brush fire that burned structures on the property, or if a fire in one of the structures sparked the woods around it.

Polk County Fire Rescue was assisting the Florida Forest Service and the Frostproof Fire Department with the fire.

The brush fire had spread across about 10 acres.
