A fire at a mobile home park in National City displaced nine adults and one child early Saturday morning. 

According to the National City Fire Department, there was an argument between a female resident and her boyfriend outside the mobile home. Another female resident saw that same boyfriend setting a car on fire parked next to the mobile home. 

The fire spread to both mobile homes on either side of the car. 

Witnesses reported seeing the male run away after starting the fire. 
 
Residents of both trailers were able to evacuate without injury. National City Fire Captian Jeremy Day said crews were able to extinguish the fire in approximately 15 minutes and saved a kitten from one of the mobile homes. 

“We have some minor damage on one trailer and more extensive damage on the second trailer. They are both unable to sleep in, so we are going to have 10 displaced this evening,” Day told OnScene T.V. 

The American Red Cross was called to help displaced individuals.
