Trailer fire in Black River

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Firefighters made quick work of a trailer home fire Wednesday afternoon.

They were called out to the Black River Estates trailer park on State Route 283, near Route 342 in the Town of Leray.

The call came in at 1 o’clock afternoon.

It started in the kitchen and firefighters say it took about 10 minutes to put out.

Black River Fire Department Chief Matthew Carpenter says no one was home when the fire started.

"A home owner arrived shortly after the arrival of the fire department. They were contacted by a neighbor, who advised them their house was on fire,” said Carpenter.

Carpenter says fire damage is confined to the kitchen with moderate smoke damage throughout the house.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The Red Cross says it is helping the two adults and 4 year old child who lived there.
