No one injured in fire at vacant mobile home

Posted

Fire damaged a vacant mobile home in Harborton Place in Middletown on Wednesday night, April 12, officials say.

Firefighters were dispatched shortly before 9 p.m. and arrived to find “heavy fire” from out of the front and rear of the mobile home in the 100 block of Pathfinder Drive, Middletown Assistant Fire Chief Kenny Whitebread told the Press & Journal.

Firefighters were told that the mobile home was vacant by Dauphin County dispatch and by witnesses at the scene. Firefighters went inside the home and searched, but found no occupants, Whitebread said.

The fire is being investigated by a fire marshal with the county district attorney’s office, according to Whitebread.

There was no damage to any adjacent trailers or property. No firefighters or civilians were injured. Firefighters stayed on scene for close to three hours.

Besides Middletown, fire companies responded from Londonderry and Lower Swatara townships. A company from Elizabethtown responded to provide rapid intervention in case of any injuries. A company came from Bressler to fill air cylinders for those fighting the fire, Whitebread said.
