DIXON, CA - It took crews more than an hour to put out a fire at a small Dixon cropdusting business Thursday night
Multiple agencies responded to the Dixon Maine Prairie Airport, along Highway 113, around 9:15 p.m where they found the hanger belonging to Dixon Aviation fully engulfed in flames.
Arriving crews used up their water quickly as wind whipped the fire into mobile homes on the north side of the hanger. The remote location did not have enough water hookups for firetrucks and it also took mutual aid units awhile to get to the remote area.
It took firefighters until well after 11 p.m. to put all the flames out.
Robert Williams lived in one of the trailers and said he heard some popping sounds and went outside to discover fire already engulfing the hanger and threatening his neighbors mobile homes.
"I didn't have hardly time to run out and tell everybody to get out. I went trailer to trailer and into the shop to make sure nobody was in the shop. I got the dogs out, the neighbor's dogs out," Williams said.
No one was injured in the fire. The cause of the fire is under investigation, but is not being called suspicious at this time.
