The mobile home on the property in the 9900 block is a “complete loss” and two cars parked in the driveway also caught fire.

Everyone in the home was able to get out safely.

A neighbour told Coast Reporter that firefighters did “a fabulous job” preventing the fire from spreading.

“It was a big fire – it was very scary,” she said. “It makes you realize we live in a forest. The flames were just shooting up from the trees. We will be doing some fire-proofing landscaping here soon.”
