The Cypress Police Department and Orange County Fire Authority firefighters responded Thursday afternoon March 15, 2018 to a report of mobile home fire at 4861 Lincoln Avenue at the Cypress Mobile Home Park about 5 miles west of Anaheim, California.
Cypress police officers arrived on scene within three minutes and were told that one victim was burned and another person was possibly still inside the mobile home.
Two police officers began a search of the area for the missing person and located the individual attempting to extinguish the fire with a garden hose. Police escorted the man away from the residence 8 seconds before an explosion occurred.
The first fire engine on the scene arrived 12 seconds before explosion.
Firefighters from the Orange County Fire Authority arrived shortly after the first police officers arrived and were able to extinguish the fire before it spread to adjacent units. Exposures included a mobile home on each side, and a Jack in the Box restaurant in the wind and in the direction of the flames and smoke. Winds were 9-17 MPH from the southwest on March 15, 2018 at Los Alamitos Army Air Field about 3 miles away.
One victim was treated for burns.
Investigators from the Orange County Fire Authority are investigating the cause of the fire. The explosion was caused by oxygen tanks located in the mobile home.
