Fire destroys trailer near Montezuma

MONTEZUMA, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say no one was injured in a mobile home fire near Montezuma, but neighbors were evacuated because of concerns about a 500-gallon propane tank near the flames.

The fire broke out in the trailer on Lake Ponderosa Sunday afternoon. Neighbors were evacuated until the fire was under control.

Dave Arendt of the Montezuma Fire Department says the owner, Shane Roberts, of Runnells, was at a nearby neighbor's when the fire started.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
