The Golden Valley Fire District (GVFD) Captain Dave Martin (left) and Firefighter-Engineer Scott Proudfoot surveys the damage to a single-wide mobile home on north Estrella Road that was allegedly caused by a microburst. According to Captain Martin, they responded to the early afternoon call on Tuesday, June 28, 2016, in which a resident stated the roof of his home had been damaged. After surveying the damage, they informed the resident there was nothing they could do as the mobile home was uninhabitable due to the roof being completely blown off and many of the roof trusses were broken. Captain Martin provided the contact information for the American Red Cross and suggested that he call them for assistance with temporary housing.
