Trailer fire in Walton

WALTON, Ky. — An explosion may have preceded a Monday morning fire at a trailer in Walton, fire officials said. The fire department responded to reports of an explosion on Crouch Road just before 2 a.m.

The chief of the Union Fire Department said ammunition and car parts are believed to have exploded. He told WCPO that a witness saw a “fireball” shoot up from the mobile home.

No one was hurt in the fire, but the trailer is considered a total loss. The cause is under investigation.
