Vacant mobile home catches fire in Wyoming

Posted at 9:37 PM, Oct 19, 2018

WYOMING, Mich.  -- Firefighters put out a mobile-home fire Friday night south of 54th Street in Wyoming. When they got to the scene, they discovered the trailer was vacant.

Division - which is the Kentwood/Wyoming border - was blocked off by police between 60th Street and 58th Street until about 11:20 p.m. Friday, according to Kent County Dispatch Authority, as crews cleaned up. The fire was put out around 9:30 p.m.

There were no reports of injuries. And it turned out that the mobile home was one of several that are for sale at that location: no one lives there.

Firefighters were sent to the scene in the 5800 block of S. Division around 8:44 p.m. Kent County dispatchers tell FOX 17 flames were reported shooting out of the roof of the single-wide trailer home. Firefighters from the cities of Kentwood and Wyoming responded.

There's no indication yet how it started.
