‘There’s really nothing left’
Blaze levels mobile home in Kingston
Little remains of a mobile home that was spotted engulfed in flames on MaGee Drive last week.
“The occupant left the house and he came back about an hour, hour and a half later and the trailer was fully involved… full of smoke and flames shooting out the windows and doors,” said Kingston District Fire Department chief Watson Arm- strong of the fire on Nov. 23 that occurred at about 10:45 a.m.
Firefighters responded to a medical emergency nearby at the same time as the blaze, Armstrong said.
Departments from Middleton, Nictaux and Aylesford were dispatched to the scene as part of the automatic aid protocol in place for structure fires. EHS and RCMP also responded.
“We got it knocked down pretty quick … it’s difficult with a trailer fire,” said Watson.
The fire chief noted there were no injuries, and no pets inside the burning trailer. The Red Cross was called to assist the displaced occupant of the home, he added.
The cause is undetermined, Watson said.
“There’s really nothing left.” Canadian Red Cross spokesperson Dan Bedell said the man displaced by the fire is staying with relatives, but the organization offered assistance with “emergency purchases like clothing, food and other basics.”
