Lucerne Valley — A fire that ripped through a vacant mobile home here Tuesday evening also brought down power lines before it was extinguished by firefighters.

The fire broke out at 6:22 p.m. when San Bernardino County Fire Department crews were sent to an address in the 62900 block of Rabbit Springs Road.

Firefighters arrived in fewer than five minutes to find the mobile home engulfed in flames, according to a County Fire news release.

Crews also found fire threatening “nearby vegetation, trailers (and) power lines (were) down as a result of the fire,” the statement read.

Firefighters fought the blaze from the exterior, knocking it down in about 20 minutes. Southern California Edison personnel also responded to deal with the electrical hazard.

Estimates of damage weren’t available, but fire officials said the trailer sustained major damage.
