Midtown mobile home arson causes $40K of damage

Citizen Staff Writer



A fire that was intentionally set caused about $40,000 of damage to a midtown mobile home early Friday, a Tucson Fire Department spokeswoman said.

No one was injured, TFD’s Trish Tracy said. The man who lives at the home had left for work.

The fire broke out around 4:45 a.m. in the 500 block of East Mohave Street, near East Prince Road and North First Avenue.

The fire was under control within eight minutes, she said.

Tracy advised everyone to report fires to 911, even those that appear to have been extinguished.

“Firefighters will investigate to ensure the fire is completely out and has not made its way into hidden areas such as walls and ceilings,” she said.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
