Fire crews have yet to determine what caused a home to go up in flames on Friday morning.

Local firefighters were called to the trailer at the South Ridge Trailer Park, behind the Duncan Cran Elementary School.

Deputy Fire Chief Curtis Redpath says no one was in the building when the fire started.

No other trailers were damaged from the blaze.

Redpath says by the time someone had reported the fire, there was heavy smoke and flames billowing out of the building.

Redpath says the owner’s pets got out of the building unharmed.

Meanwhile, Redpath says Monday’s fire at Albright Sandblasting & Steaming storage shop on 100th Street south is still under investigation.

He says he and an insurance investigator were at the scene Thursday night to determine the cause, but have yet to come to a conclusion.
