The article reads “Vancouver firefighters were dispatched to a fire at the double-wide home at 4300 N.E. 59th Ave.” and later “The damage to the manufactured home was estimated at $50,000, and most of it was confined to the roof.” The second article is from the The News & Observer in Raleigh, North Carolina that comes with the headline Fire destroys manufactured home. In this case, arson is suspected in the cause of damage to the home identified here as a mobile home. The mention of the type of home in the headline may make it seem the homes are more suceptible to fire damage.
