A fire destroyed a mobile home north of Cook early Wednesday morning.

According to the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office, the home's sole occupant was asleep on the couch when he was awakened by smoke.  He was able to make it out of the home without injury.

The home, which is on the 2900 block of Vermilion Drive in Beatty Township, is a complete loss.

Some had been coming from the utility room area near a dryer.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.
