FTLComm - Sylvania - July 11, 2000

Not a pretty site, the destroyed camper trailer you see in these pictures burst into flames beside the shop and equipment at the Silverton Construction headquarters late Sunday night. Quick action and thinking saw the owner hitch onto the burning trailer and pull it with a grader away from the other buildings and other machinery.

The large trailer served as a home away from home when the company is doing a construction project and has been parked in the yard for some time this year. What prompted it to burst into flames is a mystery right now but the trailer is totally destroyed and Monday it was sitting in the middle of the yard as a sort of landmark.
