Fire Destroys Mobile Home South Of Redding

Fire crews responded Monday morning to the deluxe mobile home park off Highway 273 at Happy Valley Road between Redding and Anderson. A mobile home was on fire, and neighbors were not aware if it was occupied or not. The dispatch was at around 5:45AM and the first arriving fire personnel reported a well involved fire. By 6 O’clock the fire was mostly knocked down and a primary search was started. Nobody was found inside. Looking for people inside mobile homes is extremely dangerous for firefighters because of the often shoddy construction. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
