CHAMBERLAIN-A fire engulfed a trailer home in Chamberlain on Tuesday, totally destroying the structure.

The homeowner and one cat escaped the home before it was engulfed, but one cat died in the fire.

Chamberlain/Oacoma Assistant Fire Chief Gary Dominiack said the fire occurred at 1:15 a.m. on Thursday on Park Drive in Chamberlain. The fire department was able to put out the fire before it spread to the two adjacent trailer homes and then left the scene at 3 a.m.

Dominiack declined to release the homeowner's name. He said he is unsure of the cause of the fire at this point due to the high amount of damage to the structure, but said it likely started in the bedroom.

The Chamberlain/Oacoma Fire Department was the only responding department, and Dominiack said about 22 firefighters responded to the scene.
