Man burned in FEMA trailer fire

Neighbors said they heard an explosion

Posted on Sun, Jul. 29, 2007

BILOXI -- A FEMA trailer fire on Motsie Road Saturday caused one heavily burned man to be airlifted to Mobile after the blaze, which destroyed the home.

The fire at the trailer park happened about 8 p.m. after neighbors reported hearing an explosion, said Biloxi's Deputy Fire Chief Kirk Noffsinger. He said one man was severely burned and sent to Mobile, while another suffered illness related to smoke inhalation.

The fire burned very quickly, which is typical of FEMA trailers, Noffsinger said.

"They are a concern," he said. "We're hoping that soon most of these people will get out and be back in their regular residence."
He said the fire was intense, and it threatened two other trailers and also one vehicle, but firefighters were able to contain the flames.

He said Saturday it was hard to tell if there actually was an explosion there, and the cause of the fire was unknown. The case is still under investigation.
