Fire destroys GC trailer home

GLENWOOD CITY —  A Sunday morning fire in the Mobile Estate Trailer Court in Glenwood City destroyed a trailer home and its contents.

The Glenwood City Fire Department and Ambulance Service were paged to trailer home fire in the court at 8:32 a.m. on March 15.

Firefighters arrived on the scene, 910 First Street lot 1A, just a few minutes later and discovered the front half of the trailer home completely engulfed in flame and heavy dark smoke. It took the department only about a half hour to dowse the fire but the home and the belongings inside were a total loss.

Two people were inside the trailer, owned by Amy Triebold, when the fire broke out. Joe Green and his five-year-old son Hayden, Triebold’s son and grandson, were able to escape without injury but were given an on-scene medical evaluation by Glenwood City emergency medical technicians as a precaution before being released.

Green told the Tribune Press Reporter that he had been in the rear area of the trailer when his son came and told him that there was a fire in the front room of the home. The pair quickly evacuated the trailer and called 9-1-1.

Triebold said that she did not have insurance coverage on the trailer or its contents.

Monday afternoon, Glenwood City Fire Chief Greg Holden said that a cause has not yet been determined and that the fire is still under investigation.

Nearly two dozen firefighters and some six emergency vehicles were on scene for approximately two hours.
