Smoke to the east of Temecula Friday afternoon was due to a fire that destroyed a manufactured home, a fire official reported.

The blaze reported at 4:28 p.m. in the 38300 block of McDonald Lane in Anza caused no injuries, but damage to the residence was extensive.

"The first arriving engine company reported a double wide manufactured structure fully involved with fire," according to a report from Cal Fire/Riverside County Fire Department spokeswoman Melody Hendrickson. "The fire was contained at approximately 4:45 p.m. with no exposures to nearby residences or vegetation."

Firefighters were committed to the scene for several hours for what Hendrickson called an "extensive overhaul."

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Those mobile homes are useless and can't even be recycled. They have to be torn apart and its not cheap. I bet they are hard to insure, too.
