CORNING, Calif. - Firefighters knocked down a structure fire that quickly spread to vegetation nearby in east Corning Sunday afternoon, but it left a mobile home and an outbuilding destroyed.

According to Cal Fire Tehama County, firefighters got a call just after 4 p.m. on Mary and Blackburn Avenues about a fire near some mobile homes.

It took close to an hour for crews to contain the flames which also burned 5.5 acres but no nearby homes had to be evacuated, said Cal Fire.

Two adjacent mobile homes within the fire were threatened but they were neither damaged or exposed to the fire.

Luckily the woman who lived inside the destroyed mobile home escaped unharmed.

A portion of Mary Avenue was closed for a brief period of time, but it was reopened a short time later. Crews will mop up the fire until at least 10 p.m.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
