Electrical issues are the suspected cause of a fire that resulted in the total loss of a trailer house on County Road 2540 in Peace Valley on the afternoon of April 10. At around 1:00 p.m., the call went out for fire departments from Peace Valley, Pomona, and Mountain View.
Peace Valley Fire Chief, Steve Gleghorn, could not be reached for comment by press time. The Fire Chief in Mountain View, Stan Murphy, described the scene.
Mountain View Fire Department responded to provide automatic aid because the scene involved a structure fire, Chief Murphy said, and tankers from Peace Valley and Pomona were present to battle the blaze.
No one was home when the call came in. In fact, the structure was already on the ground by the time a passerby called emergency services. According to Chief Murphy, the damage to the home makes the residence unsalvageable, but firefighters were able to save some of the outbuildings.
There will be no further investigation into the origins or circumstances of the fire.
