By TJ Caudill -

BUSY— An abandoned mobile home trailer burned to the ground in the Busy community of Perry County on July 29. No one was inside at the time of the fire, and no serious injuries were reported.

The Avawam Volunteer Fire Department(AVFD) responded to a call that an abandoned mobile home trailer, near the old Busy post office, had been engulfed in flames, and arrived on the scene around 3 p.m.

Firefighters with AVFD said that the owner of the mobile home trailer, who lived across the street from the trailer, told them that the trailer had been abandoned for a year or so. AVFD was able to put the fire out, but the mobile trailer had sustained heavy structure damage.

AVFD said they did not know how the fire started, but are in the process of investigating it.
