Malahat mobile home gutted by fire early Sunday

A mobile home near the Malahat was destroyed during an early-morning blaze Sunday, Malahat's fire chief says.

Chief Rob Patterson said no injuries occurred during the 2:30 a.m. blaze in the Spectacle Lake Mobile Home Park.

The fire happened while its owners were away camping, he said.

"We had a dozen firefighters there.

"We kicked the hell out of it; it was a complete loss," Patterson said of the insured mobile home.

No other homes or buildings were affected by the fire.

"Everything was kept right to that mobile."

The inferno's cause was unknown and under investigation at press time Sunday, but "it's not looking suspicious at all."

The mobile home park has been relatively fire-free for about three years, he noted.
