Fire destroys mobile home at Fairhaven property up for abatement
Fire fully engulfed a mobile home Thursday afternoon on Lindstrom Avenue in Fairhaven.
Samoa Fire responded to the scene and said someone called into the fire station after seeing a large plume of black smoke. The R.V. is a total loss.
Firefighters at the scene didn’t have an exact cause or point of origin for how the fire started. They also say that the mobile home is behind a property that still has fire lines up from when it caught fire in June.
The entire property is up for abatement. Samoa fire officials said the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors has already approved the money to clean it up.
Witnesses at the scene tell News Channel 3 that they think the fire may have intentionally been set.
