Two people managed to escape from a burning travel trailer early Sunday morning near Decatur.

Krystal Maurer and her 6-year-old daughter were not injured when the travel trailer they were living in caught fire around 2:30 a.m. Sunday at 2161 County Road 2320.

Wise County Fire Marshal Chuck Beard said Maurer was apparently cooking when the fire started. Beard said the fire was accidental.

By the time fire departments from Decatur and Greenwood-Slidell arrived, the trailer was engulfed in flames. The family lost the trailer and all its contents.

Red Cross was called to assist the family. Wise County EMS also responded to the scene.
