Firefighters responded to two suspicious fires in Wonder Valley early Sunday morning. County Fire Battalion Chief Scott Tuttle said the first call was at 1:30 a.m. at Valle Vista Road and Falderman Avenue, where firefighters found a manufactured home fully involved in flames. Tuttle said the home appeared to be abandoned. County firefighters, with the assistance of the Combat Center, had the fire knocked down in about five minutes and contained the blaze to the vacant building, which was a total loss.
Tuttle said as firefighters were clearing that fire, a second call came in at 3 a.m. at Blower Road and Pioneer Road in Wonder Valley. Firefighters arrived to find several travel trailers fully involved and threatening other travel trailers, vehicles, and out buildings. County firefighters, with the assistance of a water tender and an engine from the Combat Center, had the fire under control in about 30 minutes, and kept the fire from spreading. The trailers were a total loss. Both fires are considered suspicious, and are under investigation.
