SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- Three residents escaped safely from a mobile home fire in Springfield Wednesday morning.
A mother and two daughters were in the mobile home when the fire started and got out safely, with no injuries. They managed to put the fire out before firefighters arrived.
"(When) I arrived, the neighbors had essentially put the fire out in a single-wide mobile home," said Battalion Chief Matt Ennis. "Looked like trees on the outside started on fire and then progressed to the interior of the house just a little bit."
The fire at 2145 31st St., was reported at about 6:30 a.m. Firefighters said it started in an outside brush area. Firefighters were at the mobile home mopping up and a fire marshal was at the location Wednesday morning trying to determine how the fire started.
Smoke alarms in the mobile home were activated by the fire and alerted the residents.
