A man was sent to the hospital with critical burns on Thursday after a mobile home caught fire at the Cypress Mobile Home Park.
The Orange County Fire Authority responded to a call at the park on Lincoln Avenue at about 3 p.m. and found a mobile home ablaze, Captain Larry Kurtz of the OCFA said.
Two responding officers from the Cypress Police Department aided a man in his 50s away from the fire, but he was already critically burned.
The fire had a risk of spreading to adjacent mobile homes, Kurtz said, but was contained thanks to the efforts of 34 OCFA firefighters. The fire took about 20 minutes to put out, he said.
The burned man was not a resident of the unit that burned, and it’s not known if he lived in one of the other units, Kurtz said.
He was sent to the UCI Medical Center’s burn center and is being questioned in the OCFA’s investigation, according to Kurtz.
The cause of the blaze is still unknown.
