Klamath Falls, Ore. -- Police in Klamath Falls are trying to figure out what caused a handful of mobile homes to burn Wednesday...and the mobile home park on Hope Street is now being processed as a crime scene.
Scott Rice of Klamath County Fire District #1 notes that the fire broke out at around 4 Wednesday afternoon, and quickly spread...
"We got here and found 7 different structures on fire."
But Thursday, Klamath County District Attorney Rob Patridge wouldn't say exactly hoe many homes burned...
"There's been over 10 families displaced as a result of this fire."
Neighbors helped to rescue John Harreguy's dogs, and his bird from the fire...
"My house is okay." Notes Harreguy. "But my shop is pretty much gone - the whole back's gone."
Patridge says that not all pet owners were as lucky...
"There was a loss of at least 3 pets in this instance, and could be more."
Investigators believe the fire was started intentionally...and police are now looking for clues.
D.A. Patridge: "Clearly doesn't meet any pattern of a natural burn."
Those concerns have triggered activation of the Klamath County Major Crime Team...and police are still asking for clues from the public.
Crews from as far away as Keno and Merrill were called in to help put out the fires Wednesday.
The Red Cross has been working closely with the displaced families.
