Concord woman treated for non-life-threatening injuries after mobile home fire
A Concord woman was sent to the hospital after her mobile home caught fire yesterday morning, fire officials said.
The city’s entire on-duty force helped battle the blaze at 2 Greenwich Terrace in the Crestwood Mobile Home Park, a call that came in at 11:11 a.m., according to a press release from fire Chief Dan Andrus. Crews arrived to find heavy smoke pouring from the approximately 840-square-foot home, including battalion Chief Rick Whitney.
Whitney said the first companies on the scene found flames near the doorway of the mobile home.
“Just inside the entryway,” he said. “It was quickly extinguished.”
The fire was under control at 11:34 a.m. The cause is still under investigation but “looks accidental at this point,” Whitney said.
The sole occupant was transported to Concord Hospital, but Andrus said in the release that her injuries were not life-threatening.
The fire caused extensive damage to the kitchen area and smoke damage throughout the home, the press release stated. Whitney estimated the damage could be as high as $10,000 to $12,000. But he applauded the crews that brought the fire under control quickly and said there was no danger to other Crestwood units.
“It’s an excellent job by the Concord Fire Department,” Whitney said.
