The day before, Friday, a house belonging to Danny's brother Brian Kampnich was destroyed by fire. Firefighters say that one was started by a kerosene heater.
Larry Spencer and his wife lived there. They were both at work when the fire broke out.
Kampnich said the Spencers lived there over 16 years.
Fire officials say the trailer was fully involved when they arrived. They call it a total loss.
The family dog, which was kept in a cage inside the trailer, died. Otherwise, there were no injuries.
