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.”
