PHOTO: Two people were injured in a fire after a propane tank exploded inside a mobile home Saturday afternoon in Vancouver’s Rose Village neighborhood. A dog and two cats were unaccounted for. One person was taken to a hospital and another was being treated at the scene, according to Vancouver Fire Department spokeswoman Heidi Parr. Vancouver Fire Department crews were dispatched shortly before 2:30 p.m. for a residential fire at Northwest Mobile Estates, 3700 X St., Unit 107. A large plume of smoke could be seen blocks away. Five fire engines and a truck responded, along with two ambulances and a half-dozen Vancouver police patrol cars. The dead-end road was blocked at 35th and X streets. The three occupants of the mobile home were already out when firefighters arrived, Parr said. One of the occupants had managed to evacuate with a dog.
