MONTICELLO, Ind. (WLFI) — Neighbors are left picking up the pieces after a trailer home caught fire in Monticello.
It happened around 2 p.m. Tuesday at a mobile home park on North Francis Street.
Chief Galen Logan with the Monticello Fire Department said firefighters saw large black smoke coming from the trailer when they arrived.
He confirms the trailer was empty and it is destroyed along with a small automobile trailer.
A group of eyewitnesses said they were in the process of tearing it down.
They said they left for a break and when they came back it was on fire.
MFD said they were delayed in putting out the fire because two cars were parked in front of the fire hydrant.
Investigators are still trying to figure out how the fire started.
