A mobile home in Frenchtown was destroyed Tuesday afternoon, fire officials say it appears to be a total loss. 

Fire officials tell NBC Montana none of the residents of the single wide trailer, on the 5000 block of Ducharme Street, were home at the time of the incident.  The mobile home sits one block away from the Frenchtown Rural Fire District station.

Fire Chief Joe Calnan reported the blaze started just before 12:30 p.m.  He says when he arrived on the scene heavy flames and smoke were seen billowing from the home. 

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
