A fire broke out in a neighborhood in north Chico Tuesday.

The fire, near several mobile residences, began just after 11 p.m. on 3200 Rockin M. Drive. Evacuations were ordered for residents at Troy Lane whose homes were at risk, according to a news release.

It took about two hours for Chico’s fire department to extinguish the flames, at which point the neighbors who had to evacuate were allowed to return to their homes. The fire department remained on the scene for another three to four hours, and are still trying to determine the cause of the blaze.

“I have a fire investigation team that’s out there right now looking to see what the cause of the fire was,” Fire Chief Steve Standridge said Wednesday.

One residential structure was burnt down that had no residents currently living in it, along with another four trailers that were damaged or destroyed by the flames.

No injuries have been reported.
