(ST. JOSEPH, Mo) A trailer home burned to the ground in St. Joseph's south end early Wednesday morning.

Around 3:00a.m., St. Joseph fire crews responded to reports of a blaze on South West Sandy Lane.

When they arrived, they found a double-wide trailer fully engulfed in flames.

Crews learned that the home was vacant and decided to let the trailer burn down.

The fire department spoke with the owners of the residence who said the last time they were in town was in September, 2017.

No injuries have been reported.

Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the fire.

The forecast for today will be very similar to yesterday, but just a couple degrees warmer although we are still staying relatively cool for this time in August. The air quality is much better today with the haze starting to clear out of the area. Tonight will be cool and calm with lows in the mid 60s and light winds. There is a slight chance for isolated showers tonight and tomorrow afternoon, although most of the area should stay dry. Dry and sunny conditions continue into the weekend as temperatures start to warm up again. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and then start to climb into the 90s as we head into the weekend.
