By Max Walker, Digital Editor

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Firefighters responded to a fire on Austin Street SW on Wednesday night. That address is inside Summit View Trailer Park.

Firefighters said the trailer was a model home at the park and was empty when the fire started. A battalion chief on the scene said the fire was contained quickly and most of the damage was to the interior.

Investigators say it likely started as a result of a mechanical malfunction, and don’t consider the cause suspicious.

No injuries were reported.
