Fire destroyed a double-wide trailer at 311 North Ewing in Boyd Saturday morning, displacing a family.
Boyd, Newark and Rhome firefighters fought the blaze in the near 90-degree heat with medics on scene providing fluids and cool rags for relief. Medics also checked the vitals of firefighters battling the blaze.
Dane O’Neil, who lived in the trailer with his daughter, mother and brother, said he was at a residence up the road when the blaze started.
“I was about to go out to do a mowing job when a little girl come down the road and said there was a fire,” O’Neil said.
“It was way bad when we got here. Anything and everything we had in there is gone.”
He said the family had lived in the trailer for two months but had spent several months making repairs at the property.
The front of the structure was fully involved and was working to the back when Boyd Assistant Fire Chief Jason Adams arrived.
Boyd Police Officer Aaron Soultaire added that the front porch was engulfed in flames when he arrived at 10:50 a.m.
The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
