The Ukiah Valley Fire Authority reported that a fire started in a trailer at a Ukiah RV Park, causing serious injuries to a man and his two children, a report said.
The fire was reported at 7:15 p.m. at an RV park near the Manor Oaks Mobile Estates, East Gobbi Street. Battalion Chief Justin Buckingham stated that the fire had “self extinguished” when he arrived on the scene.
The three victims inside, which were described as an adult male, juvenile male, and juvenile female, suffered serious injuries. They were all airlifted out of the region to receive treatment. The injuries sustained by the victims were second-degree and three-degree burns.
Buckingham and several officers from Ukiah Police Department continued to investigate the scene at 8 p.m. The UPD refused to release any further details when asked. It was still actively investigating.
Buckingham answered a question about the cause of the fire and said that he was still investigating the matter, but it wasn’t accidental.
The fire did not cause any damage to other trailers. Witnesses claim that a dog who was inside the trailer was able to escape.
