We got a call that a trailer was fully-engulfed in flames, he said.
When crews arrived, Dowell indicated the structure was only 50 percent involved by the fire that appeared to originate in the rear of the home. Dowell said fire crews were able to successfully extinguish the flames in about an hour with no injuries.
The fire chief noted the residence was locked and empty upon arrival and added that no one lived at the home. He also said there was no power connected to the residence.
We deemed it to be arson, with no power to the structure and no residents, but the investigation is still ongoing, Dowell said.
Dowell said the department is looking for the owners of the trailer, who are unknown at this time.
