A fire has gutted the mobile home of park manager

A fire from an as yet undetermined cause gutted the mobile home of park manager Rick Greenwood at Apache Mobile Home Park Wednesday morning. Rick's wife Kim Greenwood and their dog escaped in time. Rick had some burns, but an hour after the blaze was extinguished, he was on site trying to help determine the cause of the fire. San Bernardino County firefighters were enroute from another call and were close by when they received the call for the Apache fire. They responded very quickly and prevented the fire from spreading to any other homes.

YUCCA VALLEY — A fire broke out in the mobile home of Apache Mobile Home Park’s manager Rick Greenwood Wednesday morning. The two residents, Rick and Kim Greenwood, and their dog, were able to escape and are safe, though Rick Greenwood sustained some minor burns.

According to an Apache resident, Yvette Desjardins, San Bernardino County Fire were on the scene right away and were able to prevent the spread of the fire to any other of the park’s homes. “Apparently they were coming back from another call and were close by, so they responded very quickly,” said Desjardins.

After the blaze was contained, Mr. Greenwood was seen at the home helping firefighters attempt to determine a cause for the fire.
