Fire burns Sterling home

Posted: April 16, 2013 - 10:33pm

A single-wide trailer home in Sterling was nearly totaled after a fire on Monday.

Central Emergency Services responded to a call from a passerby, who saw the mobile home fire, at about 9 a.m.

When CES arrived, the home was filled with smoke and flames. About half of the trailer was involved in the fire with most of the blaze concentrated in the middle of the home.

“The trailer is pretty much totaled off,” John Evans, engineer paramedic and first responder, said.

A wood frame storage and partial living space was attached to the home. Evans said the structure “would’ve went up quickly” if the firefighters hadn’t contained the fire to the mobile home.

Within 45 minutes the fire was controlled and was out by 12:30 p.m.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but is believed to have started in the middle of the home.

The trailer house was unoccupied at the time of the fire, and there were no injuries.
