Fire calls

Mobile house fire

' 200 block of West Valley View Road, Talent. Jackson County Fire District No. 5 firefighters went to the Talent Truck Stop where a trucker hauling a section of a mobile home stopped when he saw smoke from his rear wheels. A tire had blown and the brakes overheated as the driver maneuvered his load down from the Siskiyou Summit, Capt. Scott Traina said.

Traina said firefighters deal with many brake fires and house fires, but he had never seen them combine quite like this before. The heat started a smoldering fire under the floor of the mobile home, which sustained several thousand dollars worth of damage. Firefighters estimated that the new home probably was a total loss because of the smoke and fire damage.
