One person dies in mobile home fire near Lakeside

Posted: Updated:
LAKESIDE (CBS 8/CNS) - One person died and two others were injured Tuesday in a fire that spread through a mobile home at a trailer park near Lake Jennings.

The blaze in the 14000 block of Highway 8 Business in the Lakeside area was reported shortly after 10 a.m., according to Heartland Fire & Rescue. It took firefighters about 40 minutes to fully extinguish the flames, agency spokeswoman Monica Zech said.

After the fire broke out at the Shangri La Mobile Home Park, nurses at a nearby restaurant ran over and pulled one woman out from inside the home, according to Chopper 8 live reports. However, a man remained inside and died at the scene, according to emergency crews. The victim's name has been withheld pending family notification.

Medics took two other people to UCSD Medical Center in San Diego for treatment of injuries of undisclosed severity, a dispatcher said.

Fire investigators were called in to determine what sparked the blaze, according to sheriff's Lt. Clayton Lisk.
