Fire destroys RV at Sebastopol mobile home park

A woman sleeping in her recreational vehicle at a Sebastopol mobile home park awoke early Monday to find it in flames, fire officials said.

The woman escaped but was taken to a hospital, where she was treated for smoke inhalation, Sebastopol Fire Chief Bill Braga said. The motor home, permanently parked at Village Park, was destroyed. Firefighters kept the flames from spreading to mobile homes parked on either side, Braga said. One mobile home had heat damage to an outer wall.

The 4:37 a.m. fire got a large response from four agencies. Sebastopol volunteers arrived first and started a quick attack, said Santa Rosa fire Battalion Chief Jack Piccinini, who also responded. Also participating were Santa Rosa, Gold Ridge and Rincon Valley firefighters. The fire was reported under control at 5:01 a.m.

The cause remained under investigation. Red Cross was offering aid to the resident, who lost her home and belongings, Braga said.

Village Park is a small mobile home site on Highway 12 along the eastern edge of Sebastopol.
