Just after 6 a.m. on Dec. 13, the Groveport Police were dispatched to the 100 block of Front Street to assist the Madison Township Fire Department on a fire with a possible juvenile female outside screaming.
“Upon arrival, we immediately observed a skid steer pulling a fully flame engulfed travel trailer toward Front Street from the rear of the property,” said Groveport Police Lt. Josh Short. “As the skid steer reached the roadway, he dropped the trailer and moved to a safe location. The fire department arrived and immediately went to work on the fire while we kept Front Street closed from the railroad tracks to Ebright Road until they were done. We had the road closed for about an hour.”
Short said the man who moved the camper, a neighbor of the property owner, said he wanted to get the camper away from the other structures on the property and he believed some bad electrical wiring was the cause of the fire.
“Definitely not something you see every day,” said Short.
Groveport Police Chief Casey Adams said, based on information he had, there were no injuries.
