Trailer fire displaces resident, kills dog

HURRICANE CITY Hurricane Fire and Rescue responded and put out a trailer fire in Hurricane, Utah at 01:02 a.m. today. There were no injuries to the occupant of the mobile home, although firefighters were unable to revive the family dog, which remained in the structure as the occupant was escaping.

Flames were seen from the front and secondary entrances of the home at 113 West 400 South, Trailer 11A. Quick response kept the fire from spreading to nearby trailers and to other rooms of the home, according to a press release from the Hurricane Fire and Rescue. Firefighters remained on scene to investigate the cause of the fire.

The single resident in the home at the time woke up to the smell of smoke and the sight of flames, and quickly evacuated.  Family friends have provided housing and other needs for the displaced individual.

Fifteen firefighters worked for 38 minutes to extinguish the fire. The fire damage is estimated at $12,000. Several agencies assisted in the incident including: Hurricane Fire and Rescue, Hildale Fire, Hurricane Police Department, Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Hurricane City Power and Questar Gas.
