Clarkson and Leitchfield Firefighters worked together Tuesday to put out fire on Grayson Springs Road.

A fire ravaged an unoccupied trailer home on Grayson Springs Road on Tuesday, and several agencies worked together to fight the blaze.

At approximately 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Clarkson Fire and Rescue responded to the scene of a structure fire at 3103 Grayson Springs Rd. with the Leitchfield Fire Department arriving shortly after.

When Clarkson Assistant Fire Chief Ken Lashley arrived on the scene, half of the trailer was engulfed in flames, and it appeared to have started on the end of the home. Both fire departments worked together to put out the blaze.

According to Lashley, it did not take long to put the fire out, but they remained on the scene for an hour and a half to make sure it did not rekindle and to try to determine the cause.

Although the cause is still undetermined, Lashley said that a red tag was on the electric pole, showing there was no electricity running to the trailer and there was most likely no one living in it at the time.

He also said an unidentified individual was seen exiting the trailer about 20 minutes before neighbors saw smoke and called for help.

Both the Leitchfield Police Department and the Grayson County Sheriff's Office were also called to the scene.

According to GCSO Deputy Jarrod Mudd, they were present because the former resident of the trailer had been known to set booby traps for first responders, with shotguns aimed at the door that would go off it it was opened and electricity tied to the door knob to shock anyone trying to open it.

However, Mudd said that none were found this day.
