A trailer burned to the ground on Old Duck Pond Road on Monday morning.

Firefighters learned of the fire emergency through a motorist on Interstate 91 in the area of milemarker 149. The 911 call was made at 3:23 a.m., but firefighters had no specific details as to the location of the fire. In addition to Sheffield- Wheelock firefighters, other departments were toned, but the response was momentarily called off when the fire wasn’t initially found.

Firefighters ultimately discovered a trailer at 2299 Old Duck Pond Road engulfed in flames. It was quickly reported that the fire was so advanced that the structure collapsed. Joining Sheffield-Wheelock at the scene to help extinguish the fire were firefighters and equipment from Lyndonville, Glover and Sutton. Sheffield-Wheelock Fire Chief Shane Lanpher said “With so little left to look at, we don’t have enough to even speculate on the cause.” On their way to the fire scene, firefighters found a crashed and abandoned vehicle. Chief Lanpher said he doesn’t know if the vehicle crash and the trailer fire are connected. State police have not reported anything about the vehicle or the person who crashed it near the burned trailer.
