Mobile home fire in Clearlake

Authorities continue to investigate the cause of a fire that destroyed a vacant mobile home and a fifth wheel trailer last night in Clearlake. Lake County News says, The fire was first dispatched at about 8:30 pm on Sixth Street. The structures were vacant at the time. The property was said to have been used by squatters. Firefighters arrived to find power lines were down and arcing, so they couldn’t access the fire directly for nearly an hour while waiting for PG&E to arrive on scene. Mobile homes on both sides of the burning structures sustained superficial fire damage.
