A home was destroyed off Lake Boulevard Sunday in a fire that also sent two people to the hospital. One of the residents and a neighbor apparently suffered smoke inhalation while trying to extinguish the fire themselves. The location was the Park Villa Mobile Home Park off Lake Boulevard a little north of Oasis Road. The double-wide mobile was almost completely gutted, according to Redding Fire Investigator Jeremy Stoke. The cause of the fire has not been determined.
Another fire over the weekend, Saturday night, located off of Palisades Drive on the Bluffs, was caused by fireworks. A citation was issued for that fire, which burned about a quarter acre.
