FAIRFIELD CENTER — Officials are investigating the cause of a fire that destroyed a trailer Sunday on the Green Road.
Fairfield Fire Chief Dale Sweet said a single unidentified male, who rented the trailer from owner Gloria Beaulieu, was not at home when the fire broke out.
Sweet said the fire at 10:13 a.m. Sunday had been burning for some time when firefighters arrived. “When we got there, it was pretty much burnt,” the chief said. A neighbor reported the fire.
The chief said the cause of the fire had not been determined, but the blaze appears to have started on the back side of the trailer. He said the trailer burned flat.
Sweet did not know whether the renter or the owner had insurance.
