A working smoke detector alerted a rural Defiance resident, who escaped from his house trailer this (Fri) morning, when flames erupted underneath the structure. The Tiffin Township fire department was dispatched to Nagel Road at 7am, and got the fire under control with help from Ridgeville and Stryker departments. The cause of the blaze is unknown, but an electrical cause is suspected. There was significant smoke damage to the residence; and the Red Cross has been called to assist the occupant. No injuries were reported, and close to 25 fire-fighters were on the scene for over 2 hours.
