LOWER LAKE – An early morning fire on Wednesday burned three mobile homes at a Lower Lake mobile home park.


The fire broke out at the Westwind mobile home park at about 2 a.m. Wednesday, reported Chief Jim McMurray of the Lake County Fire Protection District. The park is located on Konocti Vista Drive off of Pt. Lakeview Road.


McMurray said two mobiles were completely destroyed, with a third burned but not as seriously as the others.


Two more homes were in the fire's immediate path, said McMurray, with many other homes in the park jeopardized as well.


No injuries to residents or firefighters were reported.


A total of five engines, three water tenders, one rescue and one medic unit were on scene, said McMurray, with units coming from his district as well as Kelseyville, Lakeport and Cal Fire.


Cal Fire, said McMurray, remains well-staffed in Lake County despite resources that are needed to fight Lake Tahoe's Angora fire.


McMurray estimated that 25 firefighters battled the blaze, which was contained by about 3:30 a.m., with all equipment returned to quarters by 6:30 a.m.


The cause of the fire is still under investigation, McMurray reported. “They had a lot of debris to go through to make a determination.”


Information about the individuals who lost their homes was not available by publication time.


In situations where people lose their homes to fire, Georgina Lehne, executive director of the Lake County Community Action Agency, said the Red Cross is the first responder.


However, those in need can receive food from the agency's emergency food pantry as well as clothes, Lehne said. LCCAA can be reached at 995-0495.
