NEW CASTLE — A Pulaski Township family’s mobile home was destroyed by fire Saturday morning.

The apparent cause of the fire was a space heater.

Yvonne Campbell, owner of the residence at 225 Beechwood Road in the Heritage Hills Trailer Park, said at the scene that her five-year-old grandson spotted the fire.

No one was injured, but the trailer was a total loss.

Campbell lives in the trailer with her daughter and two grandsons. Their names were not available. No one was injured.

 Pulaski Township Fire Chief Guy Morse said yesterday the structure is still standing, but that smoke damage is so extensive that the home is a total loss. He said the space heater was the likely cause of the fire, which is still under investigation

The blaze was definitely accidental, he noted, adding that the state police fire marshal has been notified.

The Pulaski Township Volunteer Fire Department responded to the fire at about 9:30 a.m. Saturday and was assisted by Union, Mahoning and Neshannock Township and New Wilmington departments.
