FARMINGDALE — A late-night fire damaged a mobile home on Winter Drive, but firefighters from multiple towns were able to stop the blaze before it consumed the home or spread to nearby residents. .
No one was inside the mobile home at 14 Winter Drive, where the fire occurred, and no injuries were reported as a result of efforts to extinguish the fire.
Farmingdale Fire Department Deputy Chief Michael LaPlante said the home was unoccupied, but had been occupied by a tenant who had recently moved out.
Investigators with the State Fire Marshal’s Office were on the scene Sunday to determine the cause of the fire.
Firefighters from Farmingdale, Pittston, Gardiner, Randolph and West Gardiner responded to the fire, which was reported to be under control at 12:23 a.m. Sunday.
Firefighters entered the home within 45 minutes, extinguished the flames, searched for potential victims and determined no one was inside, officials said.
“No one was injured and we were able to successfully stop (the fire) in the mobile home,” LaPlante said.
There are no fire hydrants in that part of town, so firefighters had to bring water to the scene.
The names of the tenants or property owners in La Plante were not immediately available Sunday.
Town property tax records show 14 Winter Street is owned by Daniel Manser.
The fire was reported by a neighbor.
Firefighters were on the scene until about 3 a.m. Sunday.
