A 14-year-old boy and his dog escaped without injury from a Prescott Valley mobile home fire this past Wednesday, Jan. 30.

A smoke alarm woke a boy, the only occupant home at the time, who said he opened a door, saw smoke, grabbed the small dog and jumped through a window.

Six engines responded to the fire at the home, which Central Yavapai Fire Marshal Rick Chase said was probably a total loss. Crews from CYFD and Prescott Fire Department answered the call that came in around 11:45 a.m. Chase said the home, located at the back of the park on a dead-end street, was difficult to access. Firefighters pulled handlines -­ hoses coming off the engines ­- to access all four sides of the home and to keep the fire from spreading to nearby residences. They evacuated two homes to the north.

A woman who said she rents the home where the fire took place declined to be interviewed for the story, but said she shared the manufactured home with her son and husband.

One resident who went by his first name of Paul said, "I was asleep. I dozed off in my chair. I don't know what time it was. It sounded like a sonic boom. I got up, and the flames were at least as high as those pine trees. I called 911."

No one was hurt in the fire, which remains under investigation.

Daily Courier reporter Ken Hedler contributed to this story.
