LIME CITY – One woman is receiving Red Cross assistance after a Sunday fire that heavily damaged her mobile home in Perrysburg Township.
Township Fire Chief Tom Brice said this morning that they were notified of the incident at 5:29 p.m. The initial call was for a trailer on fire at Perrysburg Estates, located at 23720 Lime City Road.
“They had heavy smoke and fire coming from the side of the trailer,” he said. Perrysburg and Rossford fire departments also sent mutual aid units.
The lone female occupant was able to escape without injury.
Brice indicated that crews were able to knock the fire down in approximately 15 minutes, but there was still heavy damage to the residence.
In fighting the fire, Brice said the ceiling had to be pulled off from one end to the other, causing blown-in insulation to spread around the residence; most of the damage was from smoke and water.
A financial assessment of the damage was not available this morning.
While the cause is still being investigated, Brice said that the flames were localized in an area just outside the kitchen.
The resident was receiving Red Cross assistance, he said, as the trailer was not in habitable condition.
Crews remained on-scene for approximately three hours.
