Firefighters save trailer in Cedar

North Cedar Volunteer Fire Department managed to get a fire under control before it destroyed a home.

Firefighters responded at about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday to a property at 1742 Wilkinson Rd. in the Cedar area where they found a four-by-three metre shed ablaze next to a mobile home.

Percy Tipping, North Cedar Volunteer Fire Department chief, said heat and flame from the burning shed did extensive damage to the exterior of the residence.

Firefighters managed to knock down the blaze before it could spread to the home’s interior.

No one was injured.

Tipping said an investigation will be conducted to determine the cause of the fire.
