Personnel from three departments battle Bellevue trailer fire

Firefighters from three departments battled a trailer fire Wednesday afternoon that  due to high winds and other exposures took an hour and a half to contain.

Gering Fire Chief Nathan Flowers says the  call shortly after 4 p.m. was to a trailer on Prairie Drive in the northwest part  of the Bellevue subdivision. When firefighters got there, they found the trailer and trees near the structure engulfed, plus a trailer next door smoldering. Flowers said the high winds were a concern and 25 personnel, including firefighters  from the city of Scottsbluff  and Scottsbluff Rural fire departments , battled the blaze.

A neighbor who called in the fire was able to get the lone occupant out of the trailer unharmed.

The cause of the fire was under investigation Wednesday evening as mop-up continued at the scene.
