MISSOULA - A fire destroyed a house on Grass Valley Drive, west of Missoula near the Wye, late on Wednesday evening.
Missoula Rural Fire District Battalion Chief Dan Merritt says a passer-by spotted the fire shortly after 9 p.m., and by the time fire crews arrived, the double-wide modular home was engulfed in flames.
Merritt said the responders, from Missoula, Frenchtown and East Missoula, immediately took a defensive position to protect nearby structures.
No one was injured battling the blaze, and Merritt told us that fire crews would stay on the scene well into the morning.
Fire investigators will begin to look for a cause of the blaze on Thursday.
