The cause of Saturday night’s mobile home fire is “undetermined,” according to acting Battalion Chief Chris Bracamonte of the Lake Havasu City Fire Department.
“It happens,” he said. “[Fire Marshal Scott Hartman] said they were able to narrow down the path of the fire but that the exact cause was undetermined.”
He did not know if the department would be continuing its investigation into the fire.
According to Bracamonte, the exterior of the home and car port area caught fire during the incident. It was not a “fully involved fire,” he added.
“The first engine on scene had the fire under control in a matter of minutes,” said Bracamonte. “It was primarily contained to the exterior of the building but there was a minor breach to the interior through a window.”
The fire department estimates that the fire caused approximately $75,000 in property damage and $5,000 in content damage, according to Bracamonte.
When the fire began around 9 p.m. at the residence in the 1600 block of Russell Drive, neighbors reportedly knocked on the door of the home, waking the occupants to notify them of the fire, he said.
He said that two people may have possibly been inside the residence at the time but added that the department only confirmed one person.
