Crews rescue cat from North County mobile home fire

OCEANSIDE, Calif. — A fire badly damaged a mobile home in Oceanside this afternoon, a fire department official said.

A little before 1:30 p.m., firefighters headed to the Mission View Manor mobile home park near Douglas Drive and Mission Avenue for a report of a blaze at a mobile home on Bahia Lane, according to information from Oceanside Fire Department Battalion Chief Scott Stein.

Crews arrived five minutes after the call came in and found the mobile home engulfed in flames.

The fire was under control about 20 minutes after that, and while firefighters were able to prevent it from spreading to nearby homes, the mobile home affected by the fire suffered significant damage, according to Stein.

Neither the home’s one resident nor any firefighters were injured. A cat was also saved by the resident with no apparent injuries.

The Red Cross was providing the displaced person with shelter, Stein said.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
