Fire Guts Yakima Man's Mobile Home

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA--A man loses his home and his pets after a fire tears through his mobile home.

Yakima fire responded to Regal Estates on the 2700 block of Fruitvale Ave. around 5:20 p.m. Saturday evening.

The trailer was fully ablaze when they got there, but they had to take a defensive stand against the fire, because the owner had guns and ammo in the house that were exploding.

"The first arriving crews found a heavily involved structure with reports of animals inside," Battalion Chief Tom Sevigny said.  "We also had reports of explosions, there was munitions going off inside."

Firefighters were able to control the fire in about ten minutes.   No one was injured, but the owner's cat and dog did not make it out.  

Firefighters say the mobile home is a total loss.  They are still investigating what caused the fire.
