      At least three fire companies responded to a fire at a mobile home community near 36th and Maine Streets.

      The fire started shortly before 11 a.m. Wednesday at 3632 Tonja Drive in Quincy.

      Quincy Fire Chief Joe Henning says they believe a portable heating device may have started the fire. Chief Henning said that the device was being used to thaw pipes below the mobile home.
