Single-wide mobile home fire challenging

Share

Portland firefighters battled a challenging mobile home fire early Tuesday morning.

No one was injured in the blaze that was reported at 3:30 a.m. on Sept. 2 at the Rainbow Villa Mobile Home Park, 11803 S.E. Division St.

When crews arrived, they found a single-wide mobile home on fire. Firefighters encountered several challenges: a fallen power line, a natural gas line that was damaged and on fire, and containing the fire that was within a couple feet of other homes in the park.

NW Natural and PGE were called to shut down utilities to the mobile home. The fire was extinguished and a fire investigator was called to determine the cause.

The American Red Cross was helping the four residents find another place to stay.
