A mobile home was completely destroyed by Saturday night, according to Robson Fire Chief Jeff Grant.

He said the received a call of a structure fire at 9:30 p.m., and arrived at the Ponderosa Trailer Park to find a mobile home completely engulfed in flames.

“No one was injured, but the home suffered serious structural damage,” he said, adding they were able to save about 40 per cent of the structure.”

Both Ootischenia and Pass Creek fire departments were on scene with their tenders as well, and they had the fire knocked down in about half an hour, with another four hours of safety inspection and mop-up work.

Grant also said one adjacent structure sustained some damage from the radiant heat of the blaze.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
