Overnight Trailer Fire

(WVLT) - Fire crews are investigating a fire that a family member believes is arson.

Rural/Metro crews responded to a trailer fire at the Skyline Trailer Park on Rifle Range Road in North Knox County at about 2:00 a.m.

They say flames were shooting out of the trailer when they arrived.

Crews were able to get inside and put the flames out.

"There is some heavy smoke and heat damage in the trailer, it is not a total loss, just mainly the back portion of the bedroom and the back portion of the trailer have heavy damage," says T.D. Williams, battalion chief with Rural/Metro.

Crews say no one was inside when the trailer started, but a woman does live there.

One of her family members told us they believe the fire was arson.

The American Red Cross is now helping her out.
