Tuesday, March 2, 2010

No one was injured in a late Tuesday night trailer fire.

Around 10 p.m., firefighters from Posey and Dick Johnson Township Volunteer Fire departments and Brazil City Fire Department were dispatched to a fully engulfed structure fire at Northview Country Estates on West United States 340.

Although a Clay County Sheriff's Department deputy and a nearby resident broke several trailer windows because it was believed someone may have been inside, no one was.

Flames damaged a nearby tree and caused power lines to fall, but no one was reported injured in the fire that has apparently gutted the trailer.

TransCare also responded to the scene.

The cause of the fire is not known at this time.

Officials are not releasing the names of the residents pending notification. They remained on the scene as of 11:15 p.m.

Oh wow. That is horrible. I hope no one was injured....but the losses suffered are devastating.
