A mobile home was destroyed in a fire Monday night in Sutherlin.
Interim Director of Public Safety, Kirk Sanfilippo of Sutherlin Police and Fire says that multiple calls came in just after 11:00 p.m. reporting that a structure was on fire in the 1400 block of West Central.
Sanfilippo says the older mobile home was engulfed in flames by the time crews arrived. Surrounding residences in the mobile home park were evacuated as well.
It took about 30 minutes to control the fire with the help of about 20 firefighters.
Chief Sanfilippo says the exact cause of the blaze is unknown and an investigation is underway with the Sutherlin Fire Department and the Oregon State Fire Marshal’s office.
Assisting the Sutherlin Fire Department were fire fighters from Fair Oaks Rural Fire District, the Oakland Rural Fire District, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, the Sutherlin Police Department and the American Red Cross.
