A motor home using candles caught fire near the Department of Motor Vehicles office on Railroad Avenue on Monday at 9:36 p.m.

The motor home was squatting in the brush on private property when the fire began, said Fire Chief Steve Wakefield. The Crescent City Fire Protection Department responded and put out the blaze.

Three people were transported to Sutter Coast Hospital, one with minor burns and two more due to smoke inhalation Wakefield said.
