Fire crews are battling a multiple structure fire in View Royal where several mobile homes are on fire.

Emergency crews were called to Middle Road on the Songhees Reserve located near Admirals and Craigflower Roads just after 11 p.m on Tuesday.

At least two units that are side-by-side were fully engulfed when firefighters arrived. A vehicle was ablaze as well. People living in the trailers were seen jumping out of the window to safety.

There are about 60 firefighters on scene. Colwood, Esquimalt Fire Departments, and DND Fire are on-scene to provide mutual aid to the View Royal Fire Department.

There are unconfirmed reports the fire was deliberately started.

More to come.
