Youngstown Fire

By  | 

What was supposed to be a controlled fire in someone's backyard got out of hand Sunday afternoon in Youngstown, destroying a structure in the process.

Authorities received several 9-1-1 calls around 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon. Firefighters responded to a fully engulfed trailer fire on Happyville Road.

They say a woman was burning trash when it quickly got out of control. They say the fire spread within five minutes.

Officials say it destroyed a neighboring trailer that may have been abandoned. No one was injured.

The Division of Forestry is still investigating the fire, although it is believed to be an accident.
