SPRING VALLEY, Calif. -- A fire of unknown origin destroyed one mobile home and damaged another Thursday at a Spring Valley mobile home park.

The non-injury blaze in the 9900 block of Jamacha Boulevard broke out shortly after 5 p.m., according to Cal Fire.

It took crews about 20 minutes to extinguish the flames, which also sparked a small grass fire across the street from the residential complex, said Issac Sanchez, a fire captain with the state agency.

Two adults, three children and one dog were displaced but are getting help from the Red Cross for temporary housing and other necessities.

The cause of the blazes was under investigation, Sanchez said.
