Crews immediately began attacking the fire and according to Assistant Chief Kaye Jernigan, did a great job of keeping the fire contained and away from surrounding structures. "The wind definitely contributed to how fast the fire was spreading," she said, "but they were able to get the fire out quickly."

A total of three kittens were rescued from the property and Rutherford County PAWS was called to assist.

The trailer will be a total loss, but fortunately no other structures were involved and no injuries were associated with the incident.

Fire Marshal Carl Peas was called to the scene to investigate. "At this time, we believe the fire was accidental," he said. Peas also said there were no utilities being fed to the structure.
