A singlewide mobile home on Silver Pine Drive in Sonora was totally destroyed by fire around noon today. Luckily the family living there was not home at the time. The structure was fully involved when firefighters arrived.
Chris Hatler was driving by and saw the smoke and flames. “When I got here the whole back end was going.” He said he broke out windows then yelled to make sure no one was inside. He said he then shut off the propane to the burning building and tried in vain to put out the fire with a garden hose.
The singlewide is rented by a woman, her two young children and her mother.
No one was home at the time. There were no injuries.
Fire official Deb Fish believes the fire started in a back bedroom, but exact cause is under investigation.
