Fire levels mobile home in FriendshipState Fire Marshal's Office is investigating cause
Friendship — A fire on Shipyard Road, reported by a neighbor, destroyed a mobile home Jan. 30.
Friendship Fire Chief Kevin Benner said the trailer was not occupied and does not have heat or electricity. The cause of the fire is under investigation and the State Fire Marshal's Office is expected to arrive at the scene.
There were no injuries.
The property where the mobile home sits is owned by Mark Wotton, who said he was asleep at the time of the fire, said Benner.
Wotton lives in a house on the property, and the trailer was situated behind the home.
Cushing, Waldoboro, Friendship and Warren Fire Departments were dispatched to the scene around 4 p.m., and the structure was already in flames when crews arrived. The Knox County Sheriff's Office also responded to the call.
