Residents escape Anchorage trailer fire
More than a dozen Anchorage Fire Department units responded Thursday morning to a trailer fire in an area off Lake Otis Parkway, which left one person with minor injuries.
AFD Chief Denis LeBlanc said units were called shortly before 12:30 p.m. to the 5800 block of Fiji Street, in the Manoog’s Isle trailer park. Roughly 15 responding units brought the fire under control in about 10 minutes.
“We discovered a working fire and got it knocked down,” LeBlanc said. “There were some occupants, all clear of the structure.”
LeBlanc said medics took one man from the home to a hospital for evaluation of a burn to his hand.
No immediate word was available on the extent of damages to the trailer.
