At least one person was injured Tuesday after a mobile home in Gilman caught fire. Rescue crews were called to a mobile home on North Mills Street around 3 p.m. Gilman Fire Chief Randy Mommer confirmed to KCCI that one person was treated for injuries and will likely be transported to the University of Iowa Hospital in Iowa City. Mommer said firefighters had a difficult time battling the blaze due of the structure of the home. "The fact that it's a mobile home, you really can't enter the structure," he said. "It makes it hard to get to the hot spots. We have to work from the inside out and we don't want somebody to get hurt." Authorities continue to investigate the cause of the fire.
