Emporia Fire Department responded quickly to a mobile home fire called in around 4 p.m. Wednesday.

A cutting torch left unattended is speculated as the cause of a trailer fire at 1753 lot 408, Road E, just west of Emporia. Fire investigator Eric Gilger said that there were concerns about the fire spreading to other mobile homes in proximity to the lot due to the high winds. The fire was put out almost immediately.

The trailer, which was already being torn down, was destroyed and no injuries were reported. The lot owner’s name has not been released.
