LAKEPORT – An unoccupied 60-foot mobile home near Lakeport burned to its steel frame early Sunday evening.

Kelseyville and Lakeport Fire Protection districts responded to a reported residential structure fire at an address just northeast of Konocti Vista Casino on Mission Rancheria Road near Soda Bay Road at 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

The fire had reduced the home to its floor within 15 minutes.

A Lakeport Fire Protection District staffer said they had been at the same location last October.

Emergency personnel were able in October to extinguish the blaze before the structure had time to burn to the ground.

No electrical or propane gas services appeared to be connected to the structure. Officials at the scene would not offer any conclusion regarding the fire's source.

Debris from the 2008 fire was still visible. A melted toaster, damaged washing machine and several children’s toys littered the area.

As of 8:15 p.m. no apparent injuries to civilians or emergency personnel were reported according to Lakeport personnel.
