One person was treated for smoke inhalation Friday afternoon after a quick-moving fire destroyed a Carpinteria mobile home, according to the Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Department.

Firefighters responded at about 3 p.m. to the San Roque Mobile Estates, 5700 Via Real, and found a single-wide mobile home engulfed in flames, said fire Battalion Chief Mike Gallagher.

Nearby mobile homes were evacuated while firefighters doused the flames, which took about 10 minutes, Gallagher said.

A man who was the sole occupant of the mobile home suffered smoke inhalation, Gallagher said, and was treated at the scene by paramedics.

Two Carpinteria-Summerland engines responded to the incident, and were assisted by crews from Ventura County and the Montecito Fire Protection District.

Noozhawk staff writer Lara Cooper reported from the scene.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
