Fire damages mobile home in Anaheim, displaces 2

ANAHEIM — A double-wide mobile home in Anaheim was damaged by fire and a woman and her adult son were displaced, authorities said Tuesday morning.

Firefighters and police responded to the Western Skies Mobile Home Park in the 2700 block of West Lincoln Avenue near Sunset Via about 10 p.m. Monday, August 5, and located the mobile home fully engulfed in flames and three nearby cypress trees burning, according to Sgt. Daron Wyatt of the Anaheim Police Department.

The fire began in a bedroom of the mobile home and spread to the rest of the structure, Anaheim Fire & Rescue Lead Investigator Mark Dunn said.

Anaheim fire crews, with the assistance of the Orange County Fire Authority, were able to extinguish the flames and a knockdown was declared at 10:45 p.m., Wyatt said.

The structure was deemed uninhabitable and the Red Cross was called in to assist a woman and her adult son who were displaced by the fire, Dunn said.

The woman was taken to a hospital for an issue unrelated to the fire, Dunn said.

A mobile home near the fire suffered minor heat damage.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
