The Maricopa Fire/Medical Department extinguished a mobile home fire in the Heritage District Monday morning.

MFMD responded en force to a call concerning “light smoke and a little bit of fire” coming from the attic of the residence on Condrey Avenue at about 10:30 a.m.

Battalion Chief Ken Pantoja said four trucks rapidly arrived on the scene and firefighters were quick to extinguish the blaze. Despite the damage to the home, he said, no one was hurt, which is the best they can hope for in a structure-fire situation.

“The guys [firefighters] did a good job, got [the fire] put out pretty quick, in the first couple minutes,” Pantajo said. “No injuries, it was a good outcome.”

Though there were no injuries, Pantoja said the family will likely be temporarily relocated due to the damage.

“Now we’re doing a salvage overall, and working on occupant services, getting the people somewhere to stay because the house is not livable at this time,” Pantoja said.

The official cause is unknown, Pantoja added, though considering its location in the attic area, the likely the culprit is electrical wiring.
