A Zanesville trailer home is destroyed in a fire Tuesday evening.

Firefighters were called to the home of Judy Wickham at 436 Pine Street Lot number 10 around 7:30 p.m.

"When we arrived we found a trailer toward the rear of the trailer park totally involved in flames," says Kevin Thomas, Assistant Fire Chief Zanesville Fire Department.

The cause of the fire is under investigation and the Zanesville Police Department is questioning people.

Thomas says the fire appears to have started near the rear bedroom. The trailer and its contents are likely a total loss and the family has no insurance. The Red Cross was called in to assist the five adults and one child who lived in the home.
