Fire rips through Theresa mobile home

TOWN OF THERESA, N.Y. (WWNY) - A family of five is without a home after a damaging fire Saturday afternoon.

Crews responded to the blaze inside a mobile home on Trickey Road in the town of Theresa. Chief Timothy Karg with the Theresa Fire Department says it took less than half an hour to put the flames out. He says the fire was contained to the back of the trailer where it started. No one in the family was injured, but the trailer is considered a total loss.

"Approximately 50 percent of the structure was involved in fire. Everyone was able to get out in time safely. The American Red Cross has been dispatched and is in the midst of working with the family to assist them in their needs,” said Karg.

No other homes were threatened during the fire. The cause is under investigation.

The Theresa Fire Department was assisted by Evans Mills and Philadelphia fire departments.
