PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A mobile home caught fire Wednesday afternoon in Southeast Portland. 

The blaze broke out around 3:30 p.m. in a building that was being stored at Southeast 101st Avenue and Southeast Woodstock Boulevard, according to Portland Fire and Rescue. 

Firefighters knocked the flames down quickly after arriving at the scene. 

No injuries were reported. It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the fire. 

The damage is estimated at $10,000. 

Officials said the home was being stored and no one was living in it at the time, though there were plans to eventually put it on a foundation in the near future. Fire authorities also said Wednesday’s fire was the second at the property in the past week, though it wasn’t clear if either fire was suspicious.
