A 75-year-old woman died in a mobile home fire early Wednesday in Homeland, and two people were taken to a hospital with smoke inhalation, according to Cal Fire.

The fire was reported at 6:25 a.m. Jan. 1 in the 33900 block of Clinton Avenue, just north of State Route 74, Melody Hendrickson of Cal Fire-Riverside County said in a statement.

Two dozen firefighters responded and the first on scene "reported a double-wide mobile home, fully involved with fire," Hendrickson said.

Two residents, a man and a woman, were taken to a hospital for treatment of minor smoke inhalation, Hendrickson said in an update at 10:44 a.m.
