After clearing up from a minor MVA on Interstate 85, Cowpens Engine 3 and Rescue 1 were alerted to a structure fire nearby.  Engine 3 arrived on scene to find a mobile home with heavy fire from the C side.  Engine 3 stretched a handline interior and forced the front door.  Crews worked to extinguish the fire while Rescue 1 competed a primary search.  Other responding units staffed RIT and water supply was established from a nursing tanker.  Crews extinguished the blaze in about 10 minutes and crews continued to operate for about and hour with overhaul.
