An early morning fire damaged three homes in a Kenosha mobile home park Thursday. 

The fire broke out at around 3:15 a.m. in the 4300 block of 75th Street. 

According to the Pleasant Prairie Fire Chief, the fire started on the outside of a unit, but spread to the inside and later two other units, damaging several items.

No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is not known. 

Kim Yszenga, a maintenance worker at City View Mobile Home Park, says fires are especially dangerous in an environment with mobile homes.

"They're very thin. Mobile homes do, if they catch on fire, they're gone. It's not like a regular home," he said.

"It's devastating for the residents," Yszenga added.
