AFD: Trailer 'total loss' in east Anchorage fire
An east Anchorage trailer is severely damaged after it went up in flames early Wednesday morning.
According to Senior Fire Captain Ursa Lively, the fire broke out at the Mayflower Trailer Court just after 4 o'clock. Fourteen units responded and reported seeing the trailer fully engulfed in flames when they arrived.
Neighbors in the area reported waking up to a loud boom.
Lively said the fire was extinguished in about 20 minutes. The trailer is considered a total loss.
No one was living inside the trailer home; no one was hurt.
"We got initial reports that it was a trailer being remodeled," Lively said. "And there shouldn't be anybody inside. So far, we've seen no evidence that anyone was inside."
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
This is the third residential fire KTVA has reported on in less than a week.
Lively wants to remind the public to make sure you have working smoke detectors.
"If there is somebody inside, that's how they are going to get out, early notification. Get them alarmed and get everybody outside," she said.
