July 30, 2010
CARBONDALE – A fire destroyed a trailer in the Mountain Valley Mobile Home Park after igniting shortly before 3 p.m. Thursday, Carbondale Fire Chief Ron Leach said.
“The trailer was a complete loss but it didn’t burn to the ground,” he said. It burned in the middle but not on the ends. The roof remained intact.
The trailer was in the middle of the trailer park, which is located behind the Red Rock Diner. There was a threat of flames spreading to other trailers, but firefighters were positioned to protect the other homes.
A woman at home at the time of the fire made it out safely. Leach said he didn’t know her condition, but noted she was able to walk to the ambulance. She was transported to Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs.
The Garfield County Sheriff’s Office, Colorado Bureau of Investigation and Carbondale Fire Department are investigating the cause, Leach said.
The fire department responded with four trucks and an ambulance. The first responders were on scene in less than 10 minutes after the call came in at 2:51 p.m., Leach said. The fire was out within 20 minutes.
