Oceanside, CA– Four people, one dog and one cat were displaced after a two-alarm structure fire damaged their residences at a mobile home park in Oceanside Saturday morning, fire officials said.

The Oceanside Fire Department responded to reports around 7:16 a.m. of a fire at Cavalier Mobile Home Park, located at 40 Parkwood Lane.

When fire crews arrived at the scene, the mobile home at the reported address was fully engulfed in flames and was threatening to extend into neighboring homes, according to the Oceanside Fire Department. 

While crews battle the intense blaze, others search neighboring homes for occupants while checking for fire extension. The blaze had extended into an adjacent home and was quickly extinguished while crews ensured that all occupants and pets had been evacuated. Two other adjacent homes had minor damage to the exterior. The original home where the fire was first reported was destroyed. There were no reports of injuries.

The Oceanside Fire Department is working with the mobile home property manager and Red Cross to ensure that all displaced occupants are provided shelter.

The cause and origin of the fire is still under investigation. 

The Oceanside Fire Department reminds the public of the importance of not overloading outlets with electrical appliances, using caution with space heaters, and regularly checking smoke detectors in the home.
