Newport Firefighters were dispatched at 05:03 this morning to a reported home fire in the 100 block of NW 6th Street. The first arriving fire unit reported a fully engulfed mobile home in a residential mobile home park. The fire was right next door to other homes, some just six feet away. The burning home was a complete loss but surrounding homes escaped serious damage thanks to firefighters soaking them with water until the main fire was out. Firefighters were on scene until about 8am finishing up mop-up operations.
The mobile home itself was not occupied but some nearby structures were temporarily evacuated. There were no injuries and no one was displaced by this fire.
The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
Newport Fire Department responded with 2 fire engines, a heavy rescue, several utility vehicles, and 14 personnel. Seal Rock and Depoe Bay Fire Departments responded to the scene each with an engine and crew, and Seal Rock provided a Chief Officer and command rig. Neighboring departments provided a total of 8 personnel to help fight this fire. Newport Police Department, Central Lincoln PUD and Pacific West Ambulance also assisted on scene.
