A fire destroyed a mobile home Monday and injured two people.
A single-wide mobile home used for storage caught fire about 1:30 p.m. Monday in the 4700 block of Lee Cline Road in Claremont, said Mark Pettit with the Catawba County Fire Marshal's Office.
Two people were working inside the mobile home at the time of the fire, and they sustained burn injuries from the blaze. Pettit said he thinks the people were the owners of the building.
Oxford, St. Stephens and Conover fire departments responded to the fire. The mobile home was a total loss, and the people burned during the blaze were transported to the hospital due to their injuries.
The Fire Marshal's Office is investigating the fire as an accident, but it is unknown what caused the fire. The fire started in the trailer's center, and spread throughout the structure, Pettit said.
