Chico firefighters rushed to the scene of a mobile home fire on the North Esplanade Friday night. It broke out, just behind the Philadelphia Square business park, near Eaton Road just before 10:30.
The flames spread quickly, engulfing the whole double-wide trailer. Crews immediately went to work knocking down the flames and protecting other nearby structures, including the business park buildings. Within 20 minutes the fire was out but the mobile home was a complete loss.
No other structure was damaged and no one was hurt. Investigators are working to determine how the fire started.
