One man was killed and two other people suffered smoke inhalation in a fire that destroyed a mobile home this door to a fire station in Lakeside.

Lakeside Fire Chief Andy Parr told KOGO News the fire broke out in a double-wide mobile home on Highway Business 8....right next to the Lake Jennings fire station.

The chief says the close proximity to the station prevented the fire from spreading to other mobile homes.

But he told KOGO News working smoke alarms should have alerted the residents before the fire got so big.
