Two Homeless After Jay Travel Trailer Fire

December 7, 2017

Fire destroyed a travel trailer in Jay about noon Thursday, leaving two people without a home.

Neighbors said two men and their dog had been living in the camper on State Street just off Highway 4.  The men and their dog were able to get out of the camper with no injuries; however, it was not immediately clear if they were inside when the fire started or were already gone for the day.

The camper quickly burned to the ground before firefighters arrived. Neighbors used water hoses and firefighters worked to save nearby structures from the blaze.

    @ Nana – wish I could afford to buy them another travel trailer. Or even a small out building with heat placed somewhere for them.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you fella’s and the dog. May God Bless you with a home.

    You fella’s and your dog can go to a shelter at night for the next week since it’s cold outside.

    Such a sad time of the year to loss anything much less your home.
    Someone please offer them a replacement home as a Christmas gift.
    It is so cold and wet outside. This is so sad to me, I wish I had something to give them.
