Concord Fire Destroys Trailer, Sends Three to Hospital

Posted:

Concord, VA-A fire in Concord Saturday burned a trailer to the ground and sent three to the hospital.

It happened on Falling Springs Place around 4 o'clock. The Concord Fire Department says two people lived in the trailer and were home when the fire started.

One person was airlifted with extensive burns. The other resident was transported to the hospital by ambulance. We're told a third person, a neighbor, was taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation.

The Concord Fire Chief says the trailer was engulfed in flames when crews arrived and the fire spread quickly. The trailer is a total loss.

"The trailer was fully involved when I arrived on scene, half of it had already collapsed in, and in just amount of minutes later the other half went in," said Jeff Mayberry with the Concord Fire Department.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
