One person in hospital after fire in Dundas Street trailer home | CBC News
One person was pulled from a fire in a trailer home on Dundas Street Monday afternoon.
Fire officials were called to 2189 Dundas Street, just west of Veterans Memorial Parkway, at around 5 p.m. When they arrived, they were told that someone could be trapped within the burning structure.
“When we arrived we found smoke and fire coming from the trailer unit and we had a report that somebody may have been missing at that time,” said London Fire platoon chief Gary Mosburger.
“We did make entry into the home and within seconds we did find somebody within the trailer. We pulled the individual from the trailer and awaited paramedic assistance to transport the individual to hospital.”
The condition of the person pulled from the blaze is unknown.
In a smaller structure like a trailer, it doesn’t take much time for smoke, super-heated gasses, or a fire to fill up the home, Mosburger said.
“It can make injuries more severe, for sure,” he said.
Fire investigators and London police are now probing the origin, cause and circumstances of the fire. Damage is estimated at $150,000.
