LAKESIDE -- A fire gutted a trailer behind an El Cajon-area home Tuesday morning.

The blaze in the 1700 block of Terrace Hill Drive in the Winter Gardens neighborhood erupted for unknown reasons shortly after 10:30 a.m., according to Heartland Fire & Rescue.
It took crews about 20 minutes to subdue the flames, which sent a thick column of black smoke into the air. No injuries were reported, a dispatcher said.
The cause of the fire was under investigation.
