Trailer Destroyed in Fire at Old Concrete Plant in Cloverdale
Arson may be the cause of a fire that destroyed a single-wide trailer in Cloverdale. The fire was reported early Sunday morning coming from the former concrete plant on Berti Lane. Firefighters arrived and saw a trailer was engulfed in flames. They put it out in about 10 minutes but the trailer, which was a former office building, had collapsed. No injuries were reported.
