Blotter: Afternoon fire damages unoccupied travel trailer

Comments () A Text Size

A fire Friday afternoon damaged a travel trailer in the 2700 block of Lake Vista Lane, officials said.

Brad Lahart, a battalion chief with the Denton Fire Department, said the trailer was unoccupied, but that someone was reportedly living there just days ago.

“We were told someone just moved out,” he said.

Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the fire, Lahart said.

A nearby mobile home, which was occupied, was not damaged and no injuries were reported, officials said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Denton County fire marshal.

 

Other reports

9900 block of Cherry Hill Lane — A resident of Providence Village told Denton County sheriff’s deputies Thursday night that someone had removed several solar lights from her property. Officials said the lights were valued at no more than $500.

2900 block of Terry Court — A mother told Denton police who were responding to a disturbance call Thursday night that she had found narcotics and drug paraphernalia in her daughter’s bedroom.

The daughter, 21, made the call summoning police and the mother denied any knowledge of a disturbance.

Police had to obtain a search warrant for the daughter’s bedroom after she refused to let an officer inside, officials said.

After obtaining the warrant, police found drug paraphernalia, prescription drugs and marijuana in the room, according to reports.

The daughter was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest and possession of marijuana, police said.
