MOUNTAIN GATE - A fire destroyed a travel trailer and four vehicles in Mountain Gate late Wednesday night.

Firefighters from Shasta Lake, Mountain Gate, and CDF responded to the 13 thousand block of Blue Ridge Road a little after 10 pm. Officials say Mark Wallace reported a fire in his 5th wheeler, which subsequently spread to three other vehicles and a motorcycle.

There were no human injuries, but a dog was lost in the blaze.

The fire caused down power lines, which hindered initial efforts on the blaze, and a few explosions, which officials believe were from propane tanks. Wallace's aunt, Cheryl Iakovkan" was not around at the time of the incident, and is due back tomorrow. Officials expect power to be down in the immediate area until some time later today.
