SELKIRK — A fire at a mobile home park in Selkirk caused extensive damage to a trailer Sunday afternoon.

When the Coeymans Fire Company No. 1 arrived on the scene at around 3 p.m. at Fleming’s Mobile Home Park, it was a fully-involved structure fire. The mobile home park is located at 1734 Route 9W.

A Signal 30 was called, indicating a working fire and sending out the call for mutual aid.

“A big thank you to my crew as well as the Selkirk Fire Department, Ravena Fire Department, Ravena Rescue Squad, Albany County Paramedics, Coeymans Police, Town of Coeymans Fire Investigation Team and the New Baltimore Fire Department’s Assistant Chief Scott VanWormer and son for the great work and help at the structure fire at Fleming’s,” the Coeymans Fire Company wrote on Facebook Monday afternoon.

One resident who lived in the trailer was home at the time but smelled smoke and was able to make it out safely. There were no pets living in the home.

The fire was contained and did not spread to surrounding structures.

Much of the mobile home was destroyed by the fire and it is thought to be a total loss.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
