Earlier this evening, the Bellevue Fire and Rescue Department received a report of a structure fire at 1331 Bellevue Street. 

Firefighters were dispatched to the scene of a one story, single family double wide mobile home. 

Upon arrival, firefighters evacuated one resident and his pet from the structure. No injuries have been reported. 

The resident had already extinguished a large portion of the fire with two large fire extinguishers. 

Firefighters managed to get the remaining fire under control just minutes after their arrival. 

It has been determined that the fire likely started on the exterior of the structure next to some garbage bins. 

The Brown County Arson Task Force is currently conducting an investigation.
