Firefighters called investigators from the Lamar County sheriff’s department to the scene of a mobile home fire that broke out at about 4 p.m. May 19 at 201 Midway Road. The fire was spotted by a driver and children aboard a Lamar County school bus. Emergency personnel arrived on the scene to find a fire of suspicious origin in the tightly sealed trailer. ”it was suspicious. It just didn’t look right so we called in investigators from the sheriff’s office to poke around in there, take pictures and try to determine what happened,” fire chief Steve Andrews said. The fire scene was just across Midway Road from another trailer that was destroyed by fire some months ago. Another structure fire also totaled a home in the area recently. “There has been a string of fires out here recently,” Andrews said. No one was in the trailer when the fire broke out and no firefighters were injured battling the blaze.
