No one was hurt in the fire, and it was quickly under control. A leaking propane tank may be to blame, but the investigation is ongoing, firefighters said.

At about the same time the mobile home fire broke out, a two-alarm fire went out at an apartment complex under construction at the St. Johns Town Center.

"Multitasking, dynamics and emergency preparedness, wonderful performance all around," Jacksonville Fire-Rescue spokesman Tom Francis said of the firefighters at both fires.
