Around 8:25 pm, the Kern County Fire Department received reports of a double wide mobile home on fire in the 400 block of Montview Ave in Taft.

Firefighters began an exterior attack of the fire, trying to confine the blaze to the original mobile home, while simultaneously ensuring no one was trapped inside.
