Spot News: Mobile-Home Fire

While stopped for gas a few weeks ago I noticed a stream of firetrucks head north out of Fairbanks. Being the direction I was headed I kept an eye out, spot news relies largely on chance, and I had a feeling I would find some. Sure enough about 3 miles up the road a column of smoke was rising high above the tree line.

A mobile home in a residential neighborhood had caught fire. Luckily no one was injured.
