Lightning was suspected as the cause of a Friday afternoon fire that destroyed an unoccupied mobile home near Lake Placid.

Volunteer fire crews from Lake Placid and Leisure Lakes responded to the mid-afternoon call after smoke was seen billowing from the single wide mobile home at 123 Pine Tree Drive. At least four fire trucks and about a dozen firefighters were on scene. A nearby fire hydrant was tapped for a steady water supply.
