INYOKERN, Calif., Saturday, Kern County firefighters were dispatched to reports of a working structure fire. Upon arrival, firefighters encountered a fully involved mobile home fire with additional structures threatened. Firefighters worked quickly to protect all exposures, confirm evacuations of nearby buildings, and begin extinguishing the main body of fire. A knockdown of the fire was declared approximately 20 minutes after arrival, but mop-up and overhaul were extensive due to the heavy timber construction of attached buildings, and metal frame of the remaining structure. A Kern County Fire Department Dozer was brought in to assist with breaking up the large debris pile from the structure and help extinguish hidden fire. The structure had been reported vacant. The cause of the fire is undetermined. There were no injuries or casualties reported by fire personnel or public.
