Elyria – Residents of Colonial Oaks feared the worst when they discovered a neighbor’s trailer on fire Friday night on Pennsylvania Ave. Frantic calls to Elyria Police and 9-1-1 lead rescuers to believe there were people trapped inside of the mobile home.

A slew of Elyria Police Officers were the first to arrive on the scene. Officers found the trailer and a nearby shed on fire. Officers busted a window near the back of the home in an attempt to find someone inside. Fire poured out of the window and Officers could see that fire had already spread throughout the length of the home.

Knowing if anyone was in the home they would be unable to rescue them, they began alerting and evacuating neighbors from their homes.

When Firefighters arrived they were able to get the fire under control in a short amount of time and completely extinguished a short time later. A primary and secondary search showed that nobody, including the resident’s dog, was inside of the home.

A neighbor later told Firefighters that he saw the man, who owns the home, pack up his dog and leave earlier in the evening.

Elyria Fire Investigators were called to the scene to find the cause of the fire.
