FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — The Fort Wayne Fire Department (FWFD) responded to a fire at a trailer home park in southeast Fort Wayne Wednesday evening, but their efforts to extinguish the fire were hampered by a lack of water supply.
Crews responded to a vacant trailer home in the 4800 block of Trace Drive at Stonecrest II, near the intersection of Wayne Trace and Tillman Road just before 7:30 p.m.
According to the FWFD, crews arrived at the scene to find fire coming from the rear of the structure and underneath it. It took firefighters 30 minutes to bring the fire under control.
A WANE 15 viewer provided video that shows the trailer in the early stages of the blaze.
When WANE 15 arrived, a faint cloud of smoke could still be seen coming from the trailer home.
Fire crews were hampered by a lack of hydrant water supply in the neighborhood and had to have water shuttled in, according to the FWFD.
Authorities at the scene told WANE 15 nobody was hurt, and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
The home suffered heavy fire, water and smoke damage in the fire.
