Firefighters were able to put out the flames that completely destroyed mobile homes in San Benito.
San Benito Fire Department told Action 4 News that two mobile homes caught fire.
The fires happened Sunday around 5:20 a.m. at 25924 Williams Road.
A family with three children lived inside one of the homes.
The other home was unoccupied and no injuries were reported.
The father said they had been without power for a couple days so a neighbor was using an extension cord to give them electricity.
They believe that is what caused the fire.
