We got there .. and they did not no more than get in and I got a call that our trailer was burning, when I got back out there it was burnt. We lost everything.. we lost everything. a nearby neighbor called in the blaze. the c-5 red lick volunteer fire department was the first crew on the scene. assistant fire chief john alquist says the mobile home was completely engulfed when the arrived. More of a defensive operation, we tried to save their storage building and what little things they had in the storage building .. that was our primary concern at the time. alquist says the family had lost electricity after a tree had fallen on a power line .. just a few hours prior to the fire. And then they turned the power back on and we're thinking it was a space heater that was inside the house. fire officials say they're now focusing on clean- up.
