Destructive California wildfires fueled by strong winds have caused damage at two parks for mobile homes, a report said.

The Monday fires destroyed trailers and one person was burned according to officials. 

While the wind was subsiding on Tuesday afternoon, around 30 buildings were destroyed on Monday as wind-driven fires raged throughout the Rancho Marina RV Park in Sacramento County, River Delta Fire District Deputy Chief Hugh Henderson informed local news. There were no injuries reported, and the cause was under investigation.

Within San Joaquin County, a man was burned and five mobile homes were destroyed by flames that ran across the Islander Mobile Home Park, Lathrop-Manteca Fire Chief Josh Capper told local news.

The victim suffered serious third-degree burns, Capper said.

In the southern part of Santa Barbara County coast, the Alisal Fire had scorched more than 9 square miles (23 square kilometers) in the early hours of Tuesday, and was mostly not yet contained.

The fire started on Monday afternoon on a ridge and then exploded down towards the ocean, causing U.S. 101’s closure. It is the sole major highway on that stretch of coast. The evacuation orders were issued for various areas in the populous region.
