A fire destroyed a trailer located at 4015 Millstone Rd. in Banks Township that was used for storage at approximately 1 p.m. Saturday.

Glen Campbell Volunteer Fire Company Chief Dave Lucas said the trailer, owned by Deb and Gregory Patterson, was on the ground when firefighters arrived on scene.

Lucas said it took about an hour to put out the hotspots. Glen Campbell was assisted at the scene by Rossiter, Big Run, Commodore and Burnside Volunteer Fire Departments.

Lucas said he contacted the Punxsutawney-based Pennsylvania State Police fire marshal to investigate the cause of the blaze since there were no utilities connected to the trailer.

Central Fire Department was on standby at Rossiter and Sykesville at Big Run.
