Fire claimed a mobile home in North Lubbock County just after 5pm Friday afternoon.
The homeowner didn't live their at the time, but he was there maintaining the yard just before the fire started. Firefighters say he was burning weeds.
"If you do burn some weeds around any type of structures you're going to have to be careful...it needs to be away from the structure so that it won't spread to the structure," said Randy Teeter, with the New Deal Fire Department.
New Deal and Shallowater Fire Departments both responded to the blaze.
