YANKTON - A fire that gutted a mobile home west of Yankton left four people homeless and killed at least six pets.

Investigators believe the mid-day Monday blaze was sparked by combustible materials near a wood-burner.

The Daily Press & Dakotan newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/12pu8HX ) that the Red Cross is helping the people who lived in the home.
