Pollock Pines mobile home fire sends man to hospital

A man was airlifted to the hospital today with burns on the front of his body after escaping from a mobile home fire in Pollock Pines.

Battalion Chief Mike Pott said that at 9:48 a.m. today the El Dorado County Fire District received the report of a burning residence at the Whispering Pines mobile home park, 6008 Pony Express Trail.

At least half of the single-wide mobile home was on fire when the first engine arrived. Bystanders said that occupants had escaped from the burning residence so firefighters first set about to put the fire out.

Within 10-15 minutes, the fire was controlled. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

A man who lived in the mobile home was flown to the UC Davis Medical Center. He was talking when airlifted from the scene.

Another man escaped the blaze unscathed.
