Fire erupts in Hemet mobile home

A fire broke out this afternoon in a Hemet mobile home, seriously damaging the structure before crews got it under control.

The non-injury blaze was reported about 3:35 p.m. at 881 W. Johnston Ave., near San Francisco Drive, according to the Hemet Fire Department.

Crews reached the doublewide trailer less than five minutes later and encountered smoke at the front entrance. The flames were knocked down by 4 p.m.

A battalion chief at the scene requested that inspectors from the Hemet Building & Safety Department examine the structure to determine whether it should be red-tagged as uninhabitable.

It was not immediately clear whether anyone was displaced by the fire, and the cause was under investigation.
