PHOENIX -- A Phoenix home was declared a total loss after a Tuesday fire.

Phoenix Fire Capt. Ruben Saavedra said the manufactured home near 24th Street and Bell Road burned at a very high temperature.

"When it did collapse, it actually sent a significant amount of heat that actually melted a couple of lights on our trucks," he said. "That truck was parked about 30 feet away."

The fire sent flames shooting 20 to 30 feet into the air. The cause of the fire is unknown.

No injuries were reported, but two people were displaced.
