KELSEYVILLE, Calif. – An early Wednesday morning fire destroyed a home near Kelseyville.
The fire, first dispatched just before 1 a.m. Wednesday, was located at Bayview Terrace mobile home park at 8920 Soda Bay Road, according to Kelseyville Fire Capt. Paul Scott.
The doublewide manufactured home was fully involved by the time firefighters arrived, Scott said.
All five of the home's occupants – four adults and a baby – were able to get out safely. No injuries were reported to the home's inhabitants or firefighters, Scott said.
Scott said Kelseyville Fire sent two engines, Lakeport Fire sent one engine and three additional engines came from Cal Fire due to concerns about the blaze moving into nearby wildland. However, firefighters were able to contain it before it got to the vegetation.
It took about an hour to contain the fire, with Scott noting that firefighters had issues with water supply.
Radio reports indicated firefighters remained on scene for several hours for mop up and overhaul.
Scott said the home is a total loss. However, firefighters managed to salvage quite a bit of the residents' property.
The Red Cross was called to respond and assist with finding temporary housing for the home's inhabitants, he said.
The fire's cause is still under investigation, although Scott said there does not appear to be anything suspicious about it.
