Several area fire departments were called to a fire Monday night around 9:45 at the intersection of Limestone Valley and Bagley Roads in White Cottage.

"The guys were able to extinguish it pretty easily but still did significant damage to the trailer," said Newton Township Fire Department Chief Allen Deaver.

According to Chief Deaver, the fire caused heavy damage to the vacant mobile home at 5615 Limestone Valley Road. Chief Deaver says the fire was mostly underneath the trailer.

"I would say because of the age of the trailer it is probably going to be a total loss," said Chief Deaver. 

The home’s owner says he was in the process of renovating the structure and did not have insurance. Authorities are still investigating the cause of the fire.
