CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Investigators said neighbors called 911 to report smoke coming from a manufactured home at 59 Leisure Boulevard NE in Cedar Rapids Tuesday afternoon around 2:15 p.m. 

Firefighters found a single-section type manufactured home with smoke and flames coming from the front door and the three windows on the front side of the home.

The manufactured home, located within Five Seasons Manufactured Homes community, was a total loss as it sustained significant fire, heat and smoke damage. 

Firefighters were able to contain the fire to the structure, as nearby homes were not damaged.

No injuries were reported and there was no one in the home at the time of the fire.  The home is owned by 31-year-old Ben Kinkead.

The Cedar Rapids Fire Department was assisted by Hiawatha Fire-Rescue.
