Pleasant Hill mobile park fire displaces 7 residents, burns 3 homes
PLEASANT HILL, Ore. -- It's still an active scene at Bella Casa Mobile Home Park on Edenvale Road in Pleasant Hill after a fire broke out Monday during the early morning hours.
It started around 4:30 a.m.
A neighbor in their garden saw three homes in the park on fire and immediately called 911.
The fast moving fire affected three homes and has displaced a total of seven people.
According to Pleasant Hill-Goshen Fire, one resident was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries. They have since been released.
Officials said that at least two cats died in the flames.
"It's challenging in this area because we don't have fire hydrants," said Andrew Smith with Pleasant Hill-Goshen Fire, "so all the water that comes in to be used on the scene has to be hauled from other water sources."
Some neighbors said their homes were just minutes away from catching fire. They said they were so close that the heat was making them sweat.
Fire crews are still on scene as of 11:20 a.m. making sure no hot spots are left.
Fire investigators say they do know which mobile home the fire started in, but they're still looking into the cause. They say arson was not a factor.
