MALONE — A fire that destroyed a trailer at 14 Valley Road is under investigation by State Police.

“When we got there, we saw smoke coming from the eaves of the structure and some flames visible from the inside,” Malone Callfiremen Chief Brian Gokey said. “The damage had already been done to the trailer.”

Firemen extinguished the fire “fairly quickly,” Gokey said.

The residence is owned by Edith Gallien of Constable, according to the Franklin County Real Property Tax Service office.

Gokey said he could not release the name of the tenant but did say only one person was living in the home.

Two passers-by made the initial call, alerting authorities to the blaze, he said.

Constable and Burke fire departments responded to the fire site with Bangor standing by.

Gokey was unsure if the owner of the property had insurance.

The Malone Callfiremen were back in service at 11:17 p.m. Friday.
