Fire ripped through a mobile home in Rohnert Park Friday morning, gutting the newly purchased residence.
The fire was on Fiesta Lane in the Las Casitas de Sonoma mobile home park on Bridget Drive. Rohnert Park fire officials said the home apparently had been bought a week ago and appeared to be in the process of being remodelled.
It was empty inside other than a table saw.
The fire destroyed the interior but Rohnert Park, Rincon Valley and Rancho Adobe firefighters kept flames from spreading to nearby homes other than some scorching to the back wall of a nearby home.
A neighbor reported the fire at 9:28 a.m., saying there was smoke coming from the back of the home. The first engine crew to on the scene, which came from the city's M section fire station, arrived five minutes later, said Rohnert Park Lt. Jeff Taylor.
Neighbor Jay Jones heard sirens and stepped outside to find home on fire.
First there was a great deal of smoke, then "the home just erupted" in flames, Jones said.
The cause remained under investigation.
