LAS CRUCES, N.M. — LAS CRUCES, N.M. — Firefighters and additional volunteers were still battling a large mobile home fire just south of U.S. 70 Tuesday afternoon on W. Picacho Avenue. Traffic along U.S. 70 and N.M. 292 was slowed as emergency personnel responded to the scene.
The fire spread to a second mobile home but it was quickly extinguised. A family of four, including two children, was displaced by the fire. The American Red Cross was on scene to coordinate short term shelter, food and clothing needs. No injuries were reported, and no one was inside the home at the time of the fire.
