Fire destroys mobile home in Fairview Township

Posted: Updated:

A furnace malfunction caused a fire that destroyed a mobile home in York County, according to investigators.

Fairview Township fire officials said the home in the 400 block of Valley Road was fully involved when the first trucks arrived around 7 a.m.

Firefighters said live wires and propane tanks near the home made the blaze difficult to battle.

"We cornered off the area with yellow tape, we also put up cones alerting the manpower to where the hazards are so they walk around the wires, and we put water on the propane tanks; that was what our main objectives were," Fairview Township Fire Department public information officer Robert Timko said.

The American Red Cross is assisting two adults who lived in the home. No one was injured.
