More than a dozen Cal Fire/Riverside County firefighters from multiple engine companies responded to the blaze about 9:30 p.m., after receiving reports of a structure fire.

When officials arrived they found a travel trailer fully engulfed in flames, with fire spreading to vegetation and other items in the yard.

Firefighters managed to quickly knock down the blaze and determined the travel trailer was unoccupied when the fire erupted. The trailer was considered a total loss.

No firefighters or citizens were injured in the fire and fire officials are still working to determine the cause of the blaze.
