An early afternoon fire tore through a trailer at Bay Colony Trailer Park at 310 South Main St. in Newtown, just one address over from the Botsford Volunteer Fire Company.
Botsford chief Wayne Ciaccia said the trailer's tenant was not home at the time and no one was injured. The Newtown fire marshal's office is currently investigating the cause of the blaze.
Unit 26 was significantly damaged and a neighboring trailer, No. 25, suffered minor exterior damage, but firefighters said they quickly extinguished the additional fire.
Firefighters from Hook & Ladder and Sandy Hook Fire companies also responded to the blaze. Ciaccia said about 20 firefighters were on the ground at the time. At about 12:45 p.m., some firefighters were opening up walls to make sure no pockets of flame were still present.
