Fire Destroys Mobile Home

Fire destroyed a mobile home near Estacada Tuesday night.

Callers to 911 reported seeing flames through the trees and explosions. There were initial reports of a possible occupant inside one of the structures on fire, however that was later determined to not be true and the occupant was confirmed at a different location. 

First arriving crews found a mobile home fully involved, with fire spreading to an adjacent manufactured home. 

Firefighters faced multiple challenges while fighting the fire including partial structure collapse, a cluttered interior, a spreading attic fire that was difficult to access and a spongy floor that collapsed in multiple areas. 

Once it was confirmed that no occupants were inside, firefighters began an exterior only attack, focusing on the attic where the fire was most active. 

Investigators determined the fire likely started in the mobile home, however a cause has not been determined. 

Over 50 firefighters and 15 apparatus from Clackamas, Estacada and Sandy Fire responded and were on-scene for over 4 hours. No injuries were reported.
