Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SUNDAY SELECT - Dig­i­tal First Me­dia

A fire de­stroyed a mo­bile home in the Trooper Mo­bile Home Park Satur­day morn­ing.

No in­juries were re­ported but the struc­ture was a to­tal loss, ac­cord­ing to of­fi­cials.

On Satur­day at 10:27 a.m., Montgomery County Emer­gency Dis­patch Ser­vices re­ceived a 911 call from a prop­erty owner in the 100 block of Salem Drive. The caller re­ported a fire in­side his man­u­fac­tured home lo­cated in the Trooper Mo­bile Home Park. First re­spon­ders from Lower Providence Town­ship fire, po­lice and EMS were dis­patched.

First ar­riv­ing po­lice units re­ported ac­tive fire in­side the home. Fire per­son­nel ag­gres­sively sup­pressed the fire, con­tain­ing it to the one home and pre­vent­ing it from spread­ing to neigh­bor­ing homes.

The home was oc­cu­pied by two res­i­dents. There were no in­juries re­ported, how­ever the home and con­tents were a to­tal loss. The Amer­i­can Red Cross is as­sist­ing with tem­po­rary hous­ing and im­me­di­ate needs. The Lib­erty Thrift store of Lower Providence Town­ship opened its doors to the res­i­dents for im­me­di­ate cloth­ing.

The ori­gin and cause of the fire is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the Lower Providence Town­ship Fire Mar­shals and the Montgomery County De­tec­tive’s Fire In­ves­ti­ga­tors.

As­sist­ing fire com­pa­nies were: Col­legeville, Perkiomen, Worces­ter, Jef­fer­son­ville, Nor­ris­town, Nor­ri­ton, and Val­ley Forge. As­sist­ing EMS were Lower Providence and Ply­mouth.
