The state is taking action against the management company that maintained an Oildale trailer park where a baby girl died in a fire two years ago.

Five-month-old Jenica Lozano died when fire tore through her family’s home at 4 J’s Trailer Park in Oildale in January 2016. The property management company has been charged with manslaughter. The company is accused of failing to legally maintain the property. According to the Kern County District Attorney’s Office, the family’s trailer did not have a working heater or smoke detectors.
The Bureau of Real Estate has now filed an accusation against Nijjar Realty, Inc. The bureau claims the company engaged in dishonest dealings of mobile homes and in illegal real estate practices. It’s asking to revoke the company’s real estate license. In the meantime, the license is active and the mobile home park on McCord Avenue continues to operate. 

The company is due in court a week from Friday on the criminal charges.
