FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - A mobile home park in Bloomfield was evacuated during a fire because of the threat of a possible explosion.

Police say a family's Winnebago was fully engulfed in flames Monday when the first officer arrived and spotted a 200-pound propane tank attached to the RV.

About 20 people were evacuated but there ended up being no damage to other homes in the park, according to the Farmington Daily Times .

There was no injury to members of the family that owned the Winnebago but it was a total loss and the family lost most of their belongings.

San Juan County Fire Marshal Chris Cardin says the cause of the fire is under investigation.
