COTTONWOOD - A double-wide modular home caught fire as new tenants were moving into the rental this weekend on Cottonwood Place near Country Bank.
When crews arrived, smoke was showing through the front door and the house was fully charged with smoke. Fortunately, the fire was limited to the kitchen and living room. Fire Marshal Rick Contreras said a quick attack knocked down the flames with damage limited to the two rooms.
Contreras said the fire appeared to have started in the kitchen, though the cause and the value of the damage is undetermined.
The few items that had been placed in the rooms by the new tenants were saved and no one was hurt.
