An early morning fire destroyed a mobile home on Bell Street in Arlington, displacing at least six residents, officials said.

There were no injuries, but a small dog is missing.

The home was fully involved when firefighters who were dispatched at 2:14 a.m. arrived. It was out within 42 minutes of arrival, said Arlington Fire Department spokesman Lee Tovar.

There was no damage estimate, but the fire’s cause is under investigation, Tovar said.

Red Cross responded to the scene in the 1100 block of Bell Street, across from Summit High School, said spokeswoman Anita Foster.

She did not have details about the amount of assistance needed, but said a family of six lived in the home.
