HOPKINS COUNTY, KY (3/6/12) – On Monday, March 5, Central Dispatch contacted the Madisonville Fire Department in regards to a trailer-home fire at 54 Floyd Street, Lot 2.
 
Once on the scene, Fire Department officials, Battalion 2, Engines 17, 16 and Engine 12 found a mobile home fully involved with fire. The homeowner told firefighters that everyone was out of the structure.
 
According to Fire Department officials, A 200 ft. 1 3/4" hose line was deployed to extinguish the one side of the trailer and a 150 ft 1 3/4 hose was used to extinguish the other side. Engine 16 laid 500ft of supply hose for water supply from the fire hydrant. Unit's arriving on scene deployed positive pressure fan and hand tools.
 
Madisonville Light Department de-energized the power pole feeding the structure. Engine 17 crew made entry on the A side front door and did a fast attack quick search and then backed out due to roof instability.
 
Fire crews established a defensive attack and pulled siding from the soffit to put water with foam concentrate between the two roofs. A complete secondary search was completed and extensive overhaul was initiated. At this point, the fire was declared under control.
 
The fire area was cordoned off with fire line do not cross tape. Cause was determined to be a space heater in the B side bed room.
