A fire destroyed a mobile home in rural Godfrey on Tuesday. The woman who lived there was not home at the time, and there were no injuries, but the residence is a total loss. The fire broke out sometime in the 1 o'clock hour in the 11-thousand 4-hundred block of Riehl Lane near the Jersey-Madison County line.
Fire crews from Godfrey and the QEM Fire Protection District responded to the blaze which was in Jersey County, but still a part of Godfrey's jurisdiction. A cause of the fire may not be determined due to the extensive damage at the scene.
