An aggressive interior attack was mounted using (2) 1.75 handlines and the fire was knocked down in approx. 6 minutes. The fire was found to be in the kitchen and living room areas.
Ventilation was provided by the positive pressure fan and by hoselines inside the trailer.
No one was at home at the time of the fire and the only (victim) was the family cat.
