Red Cross helps family after trailer fire near Norway

Posted by wlpo on December 30, 2011

A trailer fire near Norway has destroyed a family’s home and belongings.  A man passing by the trailer called in the blaze just before 1:30pm Friday.

Serena Fire Chief Rodney Reese says the man had to be treated for smoke inhalation after trying to enter the home.

A woman and her child weren’t home, but several cats and dogs were.  Firefighters were unable to save them.  The fire left the home and its contents a loss.  The cause is being investigated but it looks to have started near the water heater.

Volunteers with the Illinois Valley Red Cross are helping the family receiving food and clothing.
