Mobile home suffers heavy damage in Countryside Trailer Court in south Fargo
Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) – A mobile home went up in flames Saturday night, causing heavy damage and threatening other nearby trailers.
Luckily, no one was inside the trailer when the fire started.
It happened just after 8 Saturday night at the Countryside Trailer Court in South Fargo.
A neighbor saw flames coming out of the home and called it in, soon after the trailer was engulfed.
Crews were able to put out the fire quickly, but realized flames were underneath the trailer, and had to tear out the bottom.
They say their surroundings made fighting the fire difficult.
Battalion Chief Craig Nelson\Fargo Fire Department: “The main concern here is that a lot of it is access. We had difficulty getting access. My truck is parked out on the road. That's a big piece of us trying to put out the fire quickly is trying to get enough trucks and equipment in here as quickly as we can.”
No one was home at the time of the fire and crews were still trying to contact the owner. The cause is still under investigation.
