A resident is displaced, cats are missing, and an individual burned after a fire broke out in a mobile home park in San Jacinto last Tuesday.
On the eve of the Fourth of July holiday, Cal Fire responded to a multiple vehicle fire at the Reflection Lake RV Park in the 3000 block of Cottonwood Ave. First responders and arriving crews discovered a motorhome and a black sedan fully inflamed.
Immediately, firefighters initiated an aggressive attack on the fire. They managed to contain and put out the flames within only 10 minutes.
Unfortunately at the time of the fire, a dog, a cat, and a litter of five kittens were inside or near the motor home. The dog and one kitten were located, but the rest were still missing after the fire was extinguished.
The Red Cross was also dispatched to the location for assisting with a displaced resident. One individual attempted to extinguish the fire on their own and suffered minor burn injuries to their face. They denied medical treatment at the scene.
At this time, the cause of the fire is unknown and still under investigation.

Responding firefighters rush to put out the fire that consumed two vehicles.
