OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — A fire tore through a mobile home in northwest Omaha Wednesday afternoon on 111th Plaza.

Fortunately, the Omaha Fire Department said there were no injuries and they were able to get the fire under control in a short amount of time.

"Most of these trailers are built with a lighter weight construction. What we find is that the floors will give way easily, and our crews as they were making a search, they would try to make their way down a hallway and we had a hole in the floor. One of our firefighters did fall through but was not injured, was able to extricate out of the hole. Then, we drew everybody out of the structure just because of the safety," said Dan Mallory, Fire Chief with Bennington Fire Department.

Investigators are still looking into the cause of the fire.
