Klamath Falls, Ore. -- At least 7 homes have been damaged in a late afternoon fire at a Klamath Falls mobile home park on the 1600 block of Hope Street.
Scott Rice of Klamath County Fire District #1 says the fire broke out shortly after 4PM at a mobile home park on Hope Street "The initial call came in as a field fire, we got here and found seven different structures on fire."
Mona Richardson got the news by phone that her home was on fire "And sure enough, all of them were on fire. We had to get our dogs out and everything - the one trailer's just completely gone."
Family pets were a major concern for many...this bird was rescued from a burning home.
"I got a phone call that my trailer burnt down." Says Cherie Thompson. "My first thought was my animals. I had four dogs in there, and I'm thinking that none of them made it out alive."
Fire Marshal Rice notes that investigators aren't sure what sparked the fire "We've got some real, items that we need to take a look at. I've got, the ATF's been called, as well as Oregon State Police arson detectives."
No major injuries have been reported as a result of the fires.
Police helped to evacuate the entire trailer park and nearby neighbors.
Klamath County District Attorney Rob Patridge notes that the Klamath County Major Crime team has been activated to investigate a suspected arson of the multiple occupied residences.
