You saw the fires. At least half a dozen. Spread quickly, snapping gas lines, hitting a mobile home parks. Neil karlinski is at one of those destroyed mobile home parks in napa. Reporter: That's right, it didn't just collapse buildings, it started fires like the one that ravaged these mobile homes. Look how hot it was, melting these garbage cans next door like candles and sending residents running. At the napa valley mobile home park, this was the fiery scene moments after the quake hit, forcing residents to fight for their lives. Fire just exploded. It was frightening, terrifying. Reporter: Snapping gas lines, sparking a fire so hot, some people weren't sure they'd make it out. The Earth moved, the house moved. Reporter: Four of these homes burned to the ground. A another half dozen were damaged. Compounded by the fact that the quake ruptured water lines, leaving fire fighters struggling to find a way to put the fires out. We do have two swimming pools here in the community, and they were able to siphon water out of the pool into their truck and come back several times to fight the fire behind my house. Reporter: Homeowners bill and Teresa still shaken as they faced cameras, lost everything but the clothes on their backs. We didn't know what happened. The house was on fire. It was hard to get out. It was scary. We lost everything. Yeah, we lost everybody. But we're not everything, honey. Not everything. Reporter: Fortunately, everyone made it out of here alive. Power and water were out for a time, they are now being restored. Lara. Thank you.
