The fire broke out about Noon Sunday and burned about two acres along Old Highway 80 east of Los Coches Road. In addition to the one mobile home destroyed, at least 4 other homes or out buildings also were heavily damaged or destroyed. 

Lakeside Fire reported that one woman was taken to a hospital with what were described as critical burns. The woman is believed to be homeless and living in an encampment in a bamboo grove where investigators believe the fire broke out

Dozens of single-family homes in a neighborhood next to the small mobile home park were threatened as residents hosed down the backyards and slopes behind their homes as the flames burned as close as 30 yards. 

Firefighters on the ground got help from a water-dropping helicopter as it made pass and after pass above the flames and and that helped them contain the fire in less than an hour.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation.
