A mobile home in Bonita Springs was left in ruins after it went into flames Wednesday evening, displacing a woman killing her birds.

The Bonita Springs Fire Dept. responded to a mobile home that was on fire around 8 p.m. at the 20000 block of Duvernay Dr.

One woman and a dog were saved, however, six birds were killed in the fire. A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dog remains missing.

The cause of the fire was a household appliance.

To put out the flames, crews used the blitz fire technique, which bumps out tons of water at one time. Nicole Hornberger, public information officer for Bonita Springs Fire Dept., told WINK News it was challenging to put out the fire. Unfortunately, the mobile home is a total loss.

Watch as the fire crews worked to put out the remaining, resilient fire that was coming from the roof of the mobile home:
