A fire that ripped through a home at a trailer park in the 600 block of West Second Street did an estimated $25,000 damage and destroyed a single-family residence.
Firefighters received the call shortly before before 6 p.m. Friday. and responded to the blaze with nine firefighters.
The fire, according to Havre Fire Chief Craig Ellingson, started in the furnished area of the home and resulted in "extensive damage."
No other structures in the trailer court were damaged in the blaze.
Firefighters returned to the station about 9:30 p.m., Ellingson said.
Two occupants of the residence were left homeless by the fire, Ellingson said.
Firefighters were again called to the scene about 10:30 p.m., Ellingson said, after the fire was rekindled.
It is not known what caused the fire to be rekindled, Ellingson said.
Firefighters remained on the scene until about 2:30 a.m. Saturday before returning to the station.
Ellingson said one firefighter injured his hand fighting the fire. He was treated at Northern Montana Hospital and released.
