Cause of McNary Oaks home fire still unknown

A fire decimated the home of the property manager in McNary Oaks Mobile Villa on the afternoon of Oct. 30.

The cause of a fire that destroyed the property manager’s home at McNary Oaks Mobile Villa Oct. 30 is not yet known, but the fire had rippling effects throughout the manufactured home park on River Road North. 

Electricity in some parts of the park and water throughout the park was shut off more than 24 hours. 

Most of the electricity had been restored by the following morning, but residents didn’t report water service restoration until the early morning hours of Nov. 1. 

In a letter to residents, the president of Investment Property Group (IPG), Amber Monte, said that new equipment was brought in for the well on the site. IPG also brought in portable toilets and some bottled water for all residents. IPG ordered pizzas for park residents for lunch on Oct. 31 and planned to make a dinner meal available at the clubhouse on the property. Delivery for residents physically unable to reach the clubhouse was also made available. 

The Oregon State Fire Marshal’s office is investigating the cause of the fire. Keizertimes requested copies of a report on the incident but it was not available at press time.
