At approximately 9:45 a.m., officials were dispatched to a trailer located at 8239 N. CR 425 W., Brazil. The trailer sat on a lot north of United States 40.
Upon arrival, Posey Township volunteer firefighters witnessed two neighbors attempting to put out the fire, which appeared to have started in the back of the trailer, which faces west.
The trailer is owned by Don West, but has no occupants.
Neighbors told The Brazil Times no one has lived in the trailer for at least two years.
Neighbors said they were looking out their window toward their garden when they noticed the fire in the back of the trailer next to their home.
The fire was contained at approximately 10:15 a.m., but firefighters continued to battle hot spots.
Firefighters said the fire damaged only one room in the trailer.
However, they said the fire was still under investigation. Posey Township Volunteer Firefighter Earl Hutcheson told The Times the State Fire Marshal's office would be called since there was no electricity set up in the trailer.
Because of this, firefighters were not able to determine how the fire started.
Other agencies responding to the fire included the Dick Johnson Volunteer Fire Department, Clay County Sheriff's Department and Duke Energy.
