Investigators are still looking for the cause of a fire near Earls Road and Main Street in El Centro on Sunday while a hazardous materials crew deals with the cleanup of potentially harmful materials today.
El Centro firefighters were returning to the station with lunch when they noticed smoke coming from the area around 12:15 p.m. Sunday, said fire Capt. David Hudson.
While on the way to the site firefighters received a call from an El Centro police officer informing them of the fire, Hudson said.
The quarter-acre site was littered with trash and other debris, including old cans of paint, Hudson said.
One uninhabited trailer home and a fifth-wheel trailer were burned as well as the wooden roof of a cement storage building, Hudson said.
