There are no fire hydrants in the area, so firefighters used numerous tanker trucks to fight the blaze.
Firefighters were in defensive mode, trying to prevent the flames from spreading to nearby homes.
The area was closed off to residential traffic.
No one was home when the fire ignited at around 6:34 p.m. A neighbor attempted to put out the fire using a water hose and notified authorities about the blaze.
The family pet that was inside the home has not been located.
