Calallen Trailer Fire Breaks Out Sunday Morning

Posted: Updated:

Around 2:30 Sunday morning, flames could be seen shooting out of a trailer home located on Riverview Drive in Calallen.  The property is located just outside of Corpus Christi city limits so both the Annaville Fire Department and the Corpus Christi Fire Department responded. 
CCFD Battalion Chief Kenneth Erben says the trailer home had been unoccupied for several years, so their main concern was preventing the fire from spreading to a nearby home.  Crews were able to contain the fire and no other structures were damaged, though the trailer home is considered a total loss.
A downed power line was found in the rubble.  At this point, fire crews are not sure if the downed power line caused the fire or if the fire caused the down power line.
