ALLEGHENY TOWNSHIP, BLAIR COUNTY – The cause of a mobile home fire in Allegheny Township is in question after one of the trailers in the Eldorado Mobile Home Park went up in flames this afternoon.

According to firefighters on scene, most of the damage occurred on the metal siding and the rear of the house. No one was inside at the time. Deputy Chief Charles Wolfie says that he has many concerns when he first arrives on a scene like this.

“[We need to monitor] how close [the other homes] are, whether I need to pull a secondary line to keep that house cool while we’re working on the other house,” he said.

The Red Cross is providing assistance for the family at this time.
