KINGMAN - A fire that destroyed a doublewide mobile home early Christmas morning is being investigated as a possible case of arson.

About 4 a.m., two battalion chiefs, a ladder company and three engines with a total of 11 personnel from the Hualapai Valley Fire Department responded to the 2600 block of Jagerson Avenue, Battalion Chief Oscar Lopez said.

The unoccupied dwelling was fully involved in flames upon arrival of firefighters. The structure was gutted, but firefighters were able to prevent flames from spreading to a nearby residence to the east.

Lopez said the flash point appears to have been in the front portion of the structure.

No dollar estimate on the loss was available.

No injuries were reported among firefighters.
