Lakeport Fire reports on Aug. 29 structure blaze

LAKEPORT – An Aug. 29 fire destroyed a mobile home, according to local fire officials.


The Lakeport Fire Protection District reported that it responded to a reported structure fire on Mission Rancheria Road just after 10 p.m. last Sunday.


A report from firefighter/paramedic Brian Hajik explained that the agency sent one truck company, one engine company and one chief officer, with Kelseyville Fire Protection District providing one mutual aid engine company.


While units were responding, dispatch advised that an off-duty California Highway Patrol officer was on scene and advising of a fully involved mobile home with no occupants on site, according to Hajik.


The first arriving apparatus was Lakeport Fire Protection truck 5011, which found a 12-foot by 60-foot mobile home fully involved with an additional residence immediately threatened, and extension to the wildland, Hajik reported.


Captain Bob Holbrook assumed command as hose lines were stretched to protect an adjacent structure and begin defensive operations, said Hajik.


Hajik said Engine 5012 swiftly established a water supply for both apparatus and began additional suppression to both the involved structure and wildland fire.


The fire was contained in 12 minutes; however the home was deemed a total loss, Hajik said.


He reported that units remained on scene until 11:30 p.m. for salvage and overhaul.


Fire cause is currently under investigation and no injuries were reported, according to Hajik.
