Fire investigators looking into Saturday mobile home fire

By Heartland News

BENTON, MO (KFVS) - Fire crews respond to a mobile home fire in Benton Saturday night.

The call came in around 11 p.m. about a structure fire in the Grubbs Trailer Park on Shady Branch Road.

When firefighters arrived on scene, the trailer was fully engulfed in flames.

Scott county rural and Sikeston fire departments helped battle the blaze.

NBC Fire Protection District Chief Ivan LaGrand says no one was living in the mobile home and no electricity or gas were running to the building so there's no easy explanation for how it started.

The fire marshal will investigate the cause to determine if it is suspicious.

The mobile home is considered a total loss.
