FARMINGTON — A fire rekindled Wednesday morning under the remaining roof of a trailer home that burned Tuesday at Sandy River Terrace.

Neighbor Randy Burnham saw smoke and flames coming from the remains of Debra Ingram’s trailer about 10:45 a.m. Wednesday, he said at the scene.

Farmington Fire and Rescue and a tanker from Temple Fire Department cut the roofing and extinguished the flames.

Tuesday’s fire was believed to have started in a ceiling light in the kitchen, fire Chief Terry Bell said.

While Ingram watched, she asked for help from the community. She said she is is willing to give what can be salvaged from materials to someone that will do the work.

“I don’t have the resources or finances to get it hauled off,” she said. “I need help.”

Ingram owns the uninsured trailer where she lived by herself but rents the lot from trailer park owner Paul Mills.

She said she has found a few resources to start rebuilding her life but there’s nothing available for help with the trailer. The Red Cross provided some funding for food, clothing and shelter for a few nights but she needs to find a place to live, she said.

The United Way of the Tri Valley Area is providing some items and a voucher for a couple clothing items at Touch of Class, she added.

Everything is gone.  She retrieved some of her son’s wrestling medals but that’s it, she said. “There’s got to be someone in this town that can help me,” she said.

Anyone willing to clear the remains is asked to call her at 491-9002 and leave a message.
