Los Angeles County firefighters puncture the roof of a mobile home to ventilate a fire that was confined to the unit’s bathroom at the Royal Oaks Mobile Park in Canyon Country on Thursday.

A fire damaged a mobile home in Canyon Country on Thursday, but nobody was hurt in the blaze, according to fire officials.

Damage was confined to a bathroom of the home in the Royal Oaks Mobile Home Park on Soledad Canyon Road at River Circle, said Fire Department Battalion Chief Jeff Vrooman.

No damage estimate was available for the home in space 53, and the cause was under investigation.

It was the fourth mobile home fire in the Santa Clarita Valley in the past two months, and at least the fifth since Nov. 1.

The fire was reported at 1:45 p.m. Thursday and doused by 2:30 p.m. Firefighters cut a hole in the roof of the double-wide as part of their standard firefighting practices.

No one was home at the time of the fire, and no injuries were reported. The only resident of the home, Christy Jones, arrived shortly after firefighters had the blaze out.

“I thank God nobody got hurt,” Jones said.

Manager Merle Ness said he smelled smoke and pointed out the two fire hydrants in the park when the firefighters arrived.
He said he had managed the mobile home park since 1994, and Thursday’s was the first fire there since that year.
