a fire at a storage center in scott destroyed ten trailers earlier this morning.
3's jon carrere has the story.
Someone was using a fire gun to remove tile from one of the trailers.
What started in one trailer eventually spread to more.
"It was not a residential fire so saving a life was not a priority. Our priority was writing off three or four that were initially involved and saving the rest of them in the area," says Scott Fire Chief Chad Sonnier.
Eight fire departments responded to the fire at Mod Space trailer storage.
About 200 storage trailers are onsite at Mod Space but only ten were destroyed.
