Troopers suspect arson in mobile home fire

Posted: July 9, 2013 - 8:58pm  |  Updated: July 10, 2013 - 4:28pm

Alaska State Troopers are investigating a mobile home fire that appears to have been intentionally set.

Central Emergency Services was notified of the fire at about 10:40 p.m., Sunday and responded with one engine, four tankers, one medic unit and one command vehicle.

The trailer on Arc Loop Road in Soldotna was unoccupied at the time of the fire, and appears to have been abandoned, CES Captain Lesley Quelland said. No one was injured.

The fire was under control after 21 minutes and out after 25 minutes. The trailer was “completely destroyed by the fire,” Quelland said.

Alaska State Troopers are working with the property owner to find out who started the fire and why.

Anyone with information is asked to call troopers at 907-260-2702 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-478-4258.

Methane. Would have needed a spark to ignite. Is that arson?

Intentionally set

This fire was intentionally set by 2 young teenage boys.
It was on my friends property across the road from
Where I live. It was not abandoned property.
Those boys were runoff from the property by the landowner around
6 pm. They have destroyed other properties
On the same land.
They rode in on 4 wheelers. They will be identified
And should be prosecuted.

A fire of this nature could have sparked a much
Larger fire in the area.

Where were the parents of these kids?
They need to come forward and admit their
Vandalism. They dropped evidence at the scene.
