LITTLEROCK – Fire officials are still investigating the cause of a fire that destroyed a mobile home at a Littlerock trailer park this afternoon (July 10).
Fire officials received the call around 1:25 p.m. Minutes later they responded to Joshua View Mobile Home Park at 7320 East Avenue T in Littlerock.
“Upon arrival approximately five minutes later, we found a pretty well involved trailer fire,” said L.A. County Fire Department Battalion Chief Bob Mull. “Our initial action was to stop the spread of fire to the adjacent trailers.”
Mull said five engines responded to the call, and the blaze was under control in about 20 minutes.
A mother and daughter were inside the trailer at the time of the fire, but managed to escape without injuries, fire officials said.
A family dog was found hiding underneath the trailer. The fire singed the dog’s coat, but a firefighter was able to rescue the pooch before it was seriously injured.
The trailer was declared a total loss.
