Press release: Fire destroys abandoned trailer home on Anderson Rd.

The following press release was sent to The Bloomington by Jason Allen, Battalion Chief – Black Shift
Public Information Officer Monroe Fire Protection District – Station 29:

“Monroe Fire Protection District was dispatch to the 6100 block of E Anderson Rd just after 8 pm Monday night for a reported trailer fire.  Fire crews from Station 25 on N Old State Rd 37 reported a visible smoke column in the distance shortly after pulling out of the station.

Fire crews arrived on the scene to find an abandoned trailer fully engulfed in flames.  The homeowner, who was the 911 caller, confirmed no one was inside the structure, and that they had planned to tear it down prior to the fire.  Firefighters deployed two hose lines, one to the front and one to the back, of the trailer and began extinguishing the fire.  Additional crews arrived and assisted with pulling out debris from the trailer to gain access to hot spots still burning.  The fire was brought under control within twenty minutes of arriving on scene.

Fire investigators examined the fire and ruled it accidental.  The homeowner had started a brush pile on fire in the yard several feet away from the trailer.  After starting the fire, the homeowner went to mow the yard.  As he was mowing the yard he noticed the trailer was on fire and already fairly advanced.  The trailer fire started because as the homeowner mowed the yard, his discharge shoot from the mower was blowing onto the fire sending embers toward the trailer.
