Three structures are a “total loss” after Wednesday’s fire in Lakeside 2, according to Buckskin Fire Chief Chris Chambers.
“It started in a garage,” Chambers told Parker Live, “and then quickly spread to each trailer on both sides.”
The fire was driven by wind gusts on the hilly area, and worsened by the close proximity of the structures to each other, Chambers said.
The fire was fought by firefighters from four departments, with two water tenders and two utility vehicles from Buckskin, two engines from CRIT Fire, one engine and two water tenders from Parker Fire, and one fire engine from San Bernardino Fire.
Chambers said a separate fire started in a 5th-wheel in Big River, CA during the response on Lakeside, with firefighters leaving the scene to attend to the second incident.
“I’d like to thank the neighbors because they brought pizza for the firefighters, and Alyssa Young went and brought coolers of Gatorade and water for them too,” Chambers said.
Two Buckskin firefighters remained at the scene overnight to watch for re-ignition, and the process of checking its status will continue Thursday using thermal imaging.
There were no known injuries.
