MARICOPA — Maricopa Fire battled a double mobile home fire Thursday night on Saddleback Vista Avenue with extensive backup to put out the flames.
The first firefighters on-scene arrived at two adjacent mobile homes off Murphy Road already both fully engulfed in flames, according to Chris Bolinger with MFD. Firefighters worked to fight the first-alarm fire defensively, from the outside of the home, as “fire conditions made it so that entry by fire crews was impossible.”
Three other trailers in the vicinity were considered in danger of exposure to the fire and were saved by the quick actions of firefighters on scene, who doused them in water. Firefighters also managed to save a dog and two cats from the fire, which was generating extreme heat.
They weren’t alone in their fight — fire crews from Casa Grande, Phoenix, Chandler and Mesa all responded to give assistance. Volunteer teams were also on scene to help firefighters.
No one was injured in the fires, and the cause is still being investigated.
