Fire destroys Warren mobile home Police receive video flashlight WARREN — A fire in the very early hours of Thursday morning has left a doublewide mobile home with significant damage. Firefighters from Columbia River Fire & Rescue and Scappoose Fire District responded to a significant structure fire in the Mountain View Mobile Home Park at 34774 Millard Road just after 2:30 a.m. on March 6. According to CRF&R Chief Jay Tappan, crews arrived to find the mobile home with heavy flames showing through the windows and roof. Tappan said the two residents were able to escape with minor injuries, but lost all of their possessions in the devastating fire. Firefighting efforts, which were primarily concentrated on protecting the surrounding structures and vehicles, brought the fire under control after about 40 minutes. However, fire personnel remained on scene for another two hours to ensure all hot spots were extinguished. The trailer, owned by Loren and Donna Maier, was declared to be a total loss and the residents were provided with Red Cross assistance. Loren Maier said he became aware of the fire when he heard popping and crackling noises in the back

area of the home. He subsequently found the fire in the bathroom area and tried to fight it with an extinguisher, but the fire had grown too large so his wife called 9-1-1. CRF&R paramedics treated Loren Maier on scene for mild smoke inhalation symptoms and burns. Tappan said the cause of the fire was reported by the residents as most probably

a candle left burning in the bathroom, but it is unknown which materials were first ignited. Damage is estimated to be about $50,000 for the home and an unknown figure for the contents. A pet cat is thought to have perished in the home. CRF&R and Scappoose Fire responded with four fire engines, a medical unit, a water tender and several support

vehicles. A total of 25 fire personnel were on scene with no reported injuries. Tappan urges all residents to be very careful with any open flame during the winter season and to be sure to never leave candles unattended. Also, he cautions everyone to not place combustible items such as clothing, furniture, or paper items too close to any source of heat.
