A Kingsport residence was lost to fire Tuesday afternoon, displacing the occupants.

It occurred at a mobile home park in the 900 block of Tranbarger Drive near Lynn Garden Drive. The Kingsport Fire Department was dispatched shortly after 3 p.m., responding to find the mobile home at lot 13 fully involved.
