Early morning fire destroys mobile home

Sep 23, 2012 - Staff

A rental mobile home, which had been occupied only for a few days by Jesse and Chezere Manzanares, was described by Riverton Fire District investigator Matt Lee as a total loss. The source of the fire was determined to be a heating appliance in the laundry room. Chezere Manzanares suffered moderate burns to her hands when she attempted to extinguish the 2:30 a.m. fire. A pet python and dog were lost in the multiple-alarm blaze.
