Two mobile homes were destroyed and one dog was killed in a Sterling fire Monday night.
Around 9:15 p.m., Central Emergency Services was called out to a reported structure fire on Urban Court in Sterling, according to a CES release. Firefighters got there within 10 minutes, and found two mobile trailers on fire “connected by a lean-to,” according to the release.
A neighbor called the fire in to CES, but the mobile homes were not able to be saved, firefighters wrote in the release.
“While fire operations were ongoing, the property owner arrived on scene and confirmed nobody was home at the time of the fire,” firefighters wrote in the release. “The fire was under control in about 10 minutes.”
The owner’s dog died in the fire.
CES estimates the owner lost about $25,000 between the structures and the contents inside them. Investigation as to the cause of the fire is ongoing, according to the release.
CES Capt. Reed Quinton said there is no additional information about the fire yet, and that fire investigations are usually done by CES personnel.
