Fire destroys trailer home near Marty
MARTY — Firefighters were not able to save a trailer home fully engulfed in flames Friday afternoon near Marty.
The fire, which destroyed the structure, occurred around 1 p.m. Friday, about three miles south of State Highway 46 and a half-mile west on 300th Street. The homeowner’s names were not available Friday.
Wagner Fire Chief Eric Anderson said the rural trailer home was engulfed when crews arrived on scene. He said the fire grew and spread to a three-acre grassfire, but that fire was contained by firefighters.
There were people inside the home when the fire started, but they were able to get out of the home safely. Anderson said he does not believe the fire is suspicious.
The Charles Mix County Sheriff’s Department and Yankton Sioux Tribe Police also responded.
