Afternoon trailer fire breaks out on West Ridge Road

Local News

A trailer fire broke out this afternoon causing a portion of West Ridge Road to also be closed off by the West Ridge Fire Department.

Calls came in just before 12:30 p.m. for a trailer fire out near West Ridge Road.

“We had heavy fire showing from the back end of the mobile home,” said Chief Jerry DeRosa of the West Ridge Fire Department, “which started in the middle bedroom and worked their way east, and the guys made a quick knockdown on it. But there’s very extensive damage to it. It’s a total loss.”

No injuries were reported as all residents were able to escape in time.

The West Ridge Fire Department was on scene responding to the fire. National Fuel was also on scene in order to turn off the gas connected to the structure.

In order to get water to battle the blaze, the fire department needed to close off a section of West Ridge Road. The road should reportedly be opening up within the next hour.

The scene is currently being cleaned up by crews as well.
