A mother and daughter escaped injury when the travel trailer they were living in caught fire early Sunday morning at 2161 County Road 2320. Wise County Fire Marshal Chuck Beard said Krystal Maurer was apparently cooking around 2:30 a.m. when the fire started. She and her 6-year-old daughter were able to escape without injuries. 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. Beard said the fire was accidental. Red Cross was called to assist the family. Wise County EMS also responded to the scene.
