When fire crews arrived around 1:30 p.m., the trailer on Folk Ream Road was engulfed in flames. The fire is considered an arson, German Twp. Fire Chief Tim Holman said.

The owner of the trailer, who was not identified, was being evicted from the trailer park and told owners he was going to burn the trailer, Holman said. The trailer owner was obtained at the scene by police.

Holman said three fires were started in the trailer.

No one was in the trailer at the time and there were no injuries reported.

Firemen from Pike Twp. and German Twp. fire department helped put out the fire.
