The National Trails Volunteer fire department is investigating an early morning fire in Muskingum County. The Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office says it happened next to 6490 Burkart Road around 3:30  Wednesday morning. The trailer was destroyed by the fire. Whiz News was told by a fire fighter that the owner is Lisa Ferguson and she was not staying in the trailer at the time of the fire. The Ohio State Fire Marshall’s Office is on the scene trying to determine the cause of the blaze. There were no injuries reported. The heat from the fire melted some siding on a nearby house.
