Johnson said it was a small trailer house built in the 70s and was mostly fallen down and unoccupied.
Also, on Jan. 11, a trailer in the Jungle Village subdivision in Trinity.
Johnson said that the trailer was abandoned; when firefighters arrived the trailer was demolished by fire.
Johnson did not immediately know the cause of the blaze.
