An early morning fire destroyed a single-wide home in the Malaga area Tuesday.

Rick Isaacson, public information officer for Chelan County Fire District 1, said there was nobody home at the time of the fire, at 3785 Bainard Road.

Firefighters arrived shortly after receiving the call at 4:50 a.m. to find the home fully engulfed. Neighbors told firefighters a mother and two children lived in the home but after an extensive search it became clear nobody was inside. The resident was reportedly out of the area when the fire broke out. Isaacson says the Red Cross is assisting the woman with emergency shelter and clothing. She reported that she lost everything in the fire

The cause of the fire is under investigation, Isaacson said.
