Riverside County Fire Cal/Fire responded to the scene of a structure fire in Wildomar early Saturday morning.
The residential structure fire call, located in the 24000 block of Wheatfield Circle in Wildomar, came in shortly after 1:30 a.m.
“The first arriving engine company reported a mobile home fully involved in fire,” Riverside County Fire Information Officer April Newman said.
The fire was contained to the residence and was fully contained by 2:15 a.m., according to reports.
“One adult female was displaced,” Newman said. “She has made her own arrangements to stay with friends and family in the area.”
Reports from the scene disclosed that neighbors referred to the area as “The Farm,” and animals in residence included cats, dogs and ducks.
“The homeowner said she took in sick and injured animals and cared for them,” one witness said, adding that the homeowner escaped the fire unharmed.
While the homeowner declined to give her name or a formal interview, she did say she was in the process of feeding and giving medicine to several animals when the fire broke out, narrowly escaping the home.
Animal Control was requested for several cats and dogs in the residence, however all animals – nearly 2o, according to the owner – are believed to have perished in the blaze. Animal Control was on scene to assist with the animals.
