CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Charles Town-area firefighters battled a fire in a vacant mobile home Thursday night that officials said may be the result of arson.
Ed Smith, chief of Independent Fire Co., said the alarm came in at 8:15 p.m. The last unit left the scene at 9:30 p.m.
Damage was estimated at around $5,000, Smith said. About half of the mobile home was destroyed.
The mobile home was on Fifth Avenue behind the Finish Line restaurant across from Charles Town Races & Slots, Smith said.
He said the cause has been listed as suspicious.
It's the second time this week that a vacant mobile home in the Tri-State area may have fallen victim to arson.
