UPDATE: 5:50 p.m., Monday, Jan. 27, 2020 - A family was woken up by the noise of their two dogs barking and the smell of smoke.

Three people were living in the mobile home on Wyman Avenue for over 10 years.

“Get a dog, the dogs saved my life,” Hannah Blazewick, resident of mobile home.

Tony Brownell, Cal Fire Battalion Chief, said there are three people that lived at the house at the time. Luckily, all over them were out of the structure before it burnt down.

“I grabbed my computer and my purse and looked for my briefcase with my passport in it but I couldn’t find it and just got out that was it, I am 76 years old and starting over sounds really interesting,” said Blazewick.

Action News Now was told by Roger Alan Disrkell, one of the tenants inside that home, that he was working at Burger King in the middle of his shift and quickly left to see if he could grab some of his artwork before everything burned down but it was too late.

“I was trying to come here somehow to see if everybody is safe and mostly to see if I could save some of my art but I couldn’t,” said Disrkell.

Action News Now was told Butte County Fire Department it started on the exterior and upon arrival, a double-wide mobile home was 50% involved.

Brownell said they were limited on water supplies but from help, they were able to get water to the fire.
“We ended up having to lay about 1,000 feet of a 3 inch hose down the driveway by hand to get the water to the fire,” said Brownell said.

The people living inside the now burned down mobile home is counting on the Red Cross to help them on the next steps.

As of now, the fire is under investigation but it is known that the start of the fire was an accident.
