Jan. 19 blaze may have started outside structure
No injuries were reported from a fire in the Palmas del Sol East community last Friday afternoon.
The Superstition Fire and Medical District and crews from the City of Mesa Fire Department were dispatched to a mobile home fire in the 3400 block of S. Ironwood at about 5:00 p.m.
According to SFMD, “crews initially made entry into the home but were forced to switch to a defensive operation shortly after. The residents and their pets had escaped the fire without injury. The home was unfortunately a total loss.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation but appears to have started on an exterior wall and traveled up and into the ceiling space.”
