Crews contain early afternoon structure fire in Rapid Valley
RAPID VALLEY, S.D. — A trailer fire on Pioneer Drive in Rapid Valley early Monday afternoon prompted a response from Box Elder and Rapid Valley fire crews.
Rapid Valley Fire Chief Joe Tjaden says crews arriving on scene found smoke and flames visible inside the building. They were able to knock down the fire quickly, but the resulting damage is easy to see.
“The trailer house is actually two trailer houses, and so instead of being as long as most of them are, this one’s only half as long. Pretty much all that fire you can see right inside that front window,” Fire Chief Tjaden says.
Tjaden says the cause of the fire is still unknown and that no injuries were reported as a result of the blaze.
