House fire

Pittsburg firemen were challenged Monday afternoon when a modular double-wide trailer house caught fire at 1441 County Road 2512, about nine miles out of Pittsburg. According to Assistant Fire Chief David Abernathy, the home sat way off the road and there was a dirt lane leading to the house. When the first truck arrived fire was coming out of the middle, back of the house and there was a metal roof which allowed the fire to spread quickly. The owner, Yolanda Rioc, had built a fire in the fireplace and the mortar couldn’t hold it. She was in the process of remodeling the house.
