MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - Three people are being questioned on a Monday morning fire at a Shelby County mobile home park that's been abandoned since the May 2011 floods.

Shelby County and Memphis Fire crews were called to Countryview Mobile Home Park just before 8 a.m. on Monday, January 7. When they arrived, vacant mobile home was already over halfway consumed in flames. The fire was knocked down in about 15 minutes.

Three people were detained for questioning, but so far no charges have been filed.

The Northaven-area park was abandoned after more than 100 mobile homes were destroyed by historic Mississippi River flood levels in May 2011. The blighted park has been the site of numerous arsons ever since.
