Fire destroys trailers, cars at Springfield Twp.  mobile home park

One person was hospitalized for smoke inhalation following an early Wednesday morning fire that spread and destroyed two mobile homes and three cars in Springfield Township.

Firefighters helped take two residents out of a fully engulfed mobile home at Frank’s Mobile Home Park off Canton Road. One of the two people, a man, was taken to a local hospital for smoke inhalation and superficial burns to his face, the Springfield Fire Department said.

Those two people who needed help escaping were found about four feet inside the smoke-filled home, Springfield Fire Capt. Steve Simich said. “They were a little disoriented. They were assisted the rest of the way out,” he said.

The fire displaced five people in two trailers, with the American Red Cross called in to help them. One firefighter was reported injured but did not need medical attention following an explosion inside one of the trailers, Simich said.
