New York Firefighters Tackle Trailer Fire


On Thursday, September 2 at about 11: 15 a.m., the East Avon Fire Department was dispatched to a trailer fire on Parkview Drive, near Meadowlark Drive, in the Harper Trailer Park. While en route, Car 2703 was updated that a firefighter was on scene and was confirming a working fire at 74 Parkview Drive.

Upon arrival, 2703 confirmed a working trailer fire and requested Avon and Lima to the scene with one pumper each and Lakeville to fill in. Car 27 arrived and took command.

The single-wide trailer was gutted and appears to have been burning for some time prior to being found. The lone occupant had left in the morning for work. Livingston County Fire Investigators found an electrical issue behind the couch to be the apparent cause.

No one was injured. Avon Ambulance assisted in rehab.
