Fire destroys adjacent mobile home in Modesto

July 5, 2014 

Two mobile homes were destroyed in a fire early Saturday in the 700 block of Anthony Avenue in south Modesto. Ceres and Modesto firefighters fought the 3:30 a.m. blaze, which was complicated by a broken natural-gas line and downed power lines, said Modesto Fire Department Battalion Chief Randy Anderson.

Firefighters kept the fire from spreading to nearby mobile homes and a business. They needed half an hour to put out the blaze. There were no reported injuries.
