Upon arrival, they found a single-wide mobile home consumed in flames. Two Kennewick Police officers arrived just prior to the fire crews, and were able to learn no one was inside the structure, but were told there might be 2 dogs inside.
The fire also spread rapidly to a 27-foot fifth-wheel travel trailer, and also destroyed a camp trailer, all were parked within a few feet of each other.
Fortunately, no one was hurt, but the two dogs did not survive. One was found inside the mobile home, the other inside the fifth wheel.
