Firefighters are investigating the cause of a trailer fire in Newton Township.
According to Lieutenant Josh Bryan, firefighters from Newton Township, South Zanesville and Roseville were called to Darlington Drive Sunday afternoon.
He said the trailer was fully engulfed, but crews were able to contain the fire. Bryan said the trailer has been unoccupied for about six months.
Bryan said the cause hasn't been determined yet, but the dry weather and carelessness on the part of the homeowner were contributing factors to the fire.
The Muskingum County Auditor's website lists George and Carolyn Evans as the owners of the property.
