A fast-moving fire swept through a rural mobile home park in central Indiana, badly damaging at least five trailers.

No injuries were reported from the fire early Wednesday at the mobile home park near the Hendricks County town of Clayton, but many people had to scramble to safety ahead of the flames.

Resident Nina Winkler tells WTHR-TV that by the time she got out
of her home one of its walls was just flames.

The fire's cause wasn't immediately determined and WRTV reports
several explosions from fuel tanks might have helped the fire spread.

Several fire departments sent crews to the scene along U.S. 40
about 20 miles west of Indianapolis. Danville fire Lt. Troy Clements says extra tanker trucks were needed since the nearest hydrant is four miles away.
