Fire marshal investigating after flames destroy a mobile home in Sand Springs

SAND SPRINGS, Okla. - The fire marshal is investigating a fire that destroyed a mobile home in Sand Springs early Wednesday morning.

Firefighters say flames had engulfed the home near 1400 S. 145th W. Ave. when they arrived shortly after midnight.

They say their information indicated that the trailer was vacant.  However, firefighters who searched the burning home found evidence that someone had been staying there.

With no utilities hooked up to provide heat, investigators are looking at the possibility that squatters may have been using some other heat source to stay warm.

No one was inside at the time of the fire.  

There are few fire hydrants in the area so firefighters had to shuttle water in with a tanker truck.

Another home in the same neighborhood burned just five days ago.
