FMMFD fire FORT MOHAVE, ARIZ.– A double-wide mobile home in the Tierra Grande neighborhood of Fort Mohave was destroyed by fire this evening. One firefighter sustained minor injuries when a small explosion sent shrapnel into his face. Battalion Chief Jody Hall described the injuries as ‘non-life threatening.’ Dispatchers received the call of a structure fire at a residence in the 1600 block of Luna Media shortly before 5:30 p.m. No one was home at the time of the blaze. Firefighters with the Fort Mojave Mesa Fire Department were the first on scene and, upon arrival, reported that flames had engulfed the entire structure. They took a defensive posture to keep the fire from spreading to neighboring houses.  Additional crews and engines from the Mohave Valley and Bullhead City Fire Departments were also called out to assist in the firefighting effort. Hall said, it took firefighters approximately 20 minutes to get the fire under control. The Fort Mojave fire marshal was on scene after the blaze was doused to look for clues as to how the fire started. At this time, it is too early to tell what may have ignited the blaze. Hall said, the mobile home, an attached garage and its contents, including a vehicle were all destroyed by the fire.
