Ukiah man may have set fire to his mobile home

Ukiah fire officials believe a man set fire to his own trailer Wednesday morning.

Mendocino County deputies want to question Kirk Boesel, who was last seen bicycling away from his trailer in the Deep Valley mobile home park on South State Street, said John Bartlett, chief of the combined Ukiah Fire Department and Ukiah Valley Fire District.

Boesel told a neighbor to call 911 as he left the trailer park just after 11 a.m., Bartlett said.

Firefighters found the contents of a Coleman fuel cannister had been used to start the fire inside Boesel's trailer, he said.

Most of the damage to the trailer was from smoke, but there also was some fire damage, Bartlett said.
