Man helps save about 40 mobile homes in Santa Rosa, police say

SANTA ROSA, Calif. - Police said a man helped save about 40 mobile homes in danger of the Tubbs fire early Monday morning. 

Priest Morgans said he noticed a wall of flames in the Journey's End mobile home park, so he grabbed a hose and with the help of firefighters, saved the mobile homes.

Morgans estimated there were more than 100 mobile homes in the park.

Morgans said he is a trained firefighter and felt compelled to help.

"I put $9,000 in my motorcycle last month," he said. "I'm not losing my bike and my home if I can stop it."

When asked if he felt like a hero, he replied: "Hero? No. Those 3 guys who stood there for 3 hours and went to fight another fire, those guys are the heroes. Those guys in yellow suits, those are the heroes."

Morgans said a woman died in the mobile home park.

In another hard hit area of Santa Rosa, some homeowners returned home to find nothing standing.
