Four people were displaced after a fire sparked inside their Valencia Park trailer Tuesday morning.

Firefighters were called to the Lincoln Park mobile home community in the 300 block of 54th Street around 10:40 a.m. Smoke was coming from the trailer when crews arrived.

“We had heavy smoke from the front and back door and windows,” said Capt. Chad Allison with the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department. “Inside, fire was rolling over us.”

Allison said firefighters extinguished the blaze in minutes.

The four adults who live there are safe and are receiving assistance from the Red Cross, according to officials. No one was injured, and the fire did not spread to nearby homes.

Officials said the fire caused $10,000 in damage to the mobile home and $5,000 to its contents.

The cause of the fire is currently listed as “undetermined” and is under investigation by the Metro Arson Strike Team.

This happened about three miles from a string of suspicious fires that started overnight in Chollas Creek.
