Fire destroys Los Banos mobile home

A fire destroyed a mobile home Monday morning in the Casa Mobile Park at 436 N. Mercey Springs Road in Los Banos.

A woman was cooking for her child in the kitchen of the mobile home, located at 120 Poppy Lane, at 9:24 a.m. when, according to Los Banos Fire Chief Chet Guintini, she looked away to tend to her child and when she turned around the kitchen was on fire.

Three fire engines were used to extinguish the home which was completely lost in the fire. The woman and her child escaped unhurt. A mobile home next door suffered some heat damage to the outside as well as a pickup parked in the driveway.
