A fire at a construction site in Carson did significant damage to a mobile home park and a senior center last night.

NBC Los Angeles reports that the blaze started next to the Park Avalon mobile home park at about 5 p.m. in the 21000 block of South Avalon Boulevard. It spread quickly, destroying ten homes and prompting the evacuation of all residents.

In addition to the park, KTLA reports that the fire took down five buildings at the nearby Renaissance City Center, a three-story senior living facility. 139 people were evacuated, and brought to the Carson Community Center for treatment.

No one was seriously injured at either location, and the cause of the blaze is still under investigation.
