Friday fire wrecks Waynesville trailer
Friday fire wrecks Waynesville trailer

Waynesville firefighters consider this trailer fire suspicious.
WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (June 5, 2010) — An early Friday morning fire wrecked a mobile home in Wagner Trailer Court and is considered suspicious, according to Waynesville Rural Fire Chief Doug Yurecko.

“There was quite a lot of the trailer saved from a four-minute response time; it’s still totaled but most of it is still there,” Yurecko said. “If the neighbor lady’s dog hadn’t been barking, it would have been a lot larger operation and a lot more damage.”

Yurecko said nobody was home at the trailer, located at Lot 7 of the trailer park, but it wasn’t abandoned and the trailer sustained extensive damage to its contents.

The blaze was reported about 3:20 a.m., Yurecko said.

“Upon arrival there was heavy fire in the rear of the trailer, but we attacked and knocked it down within a minute and a half,” Yurecko said.

Firefighters remained on the scene for about two and half more hours hosing down the trailer and doing preliminary investigative work while awaiting the arrival of a state fire marshal who is conducting a more extensive investigation. The fire appears to have started at multiple origination points, Yurecko said.

Three departments responded to the blaze. Waynesville firefighters sent an engine with four firefighters; Crocker and St. Robert firefighters each responded with one engine and two firefighters from St. Robert and five from Crocker.

No cause was immediately released pending investigation.
