Fire guts mobile home

A fire in an abandoned house kept firefighters busy in the early morning hours of March 26.
Shortly after 2 a.m., firefighters arrived at 37 Vintage Drive - just off Hwy. 37 south of Williston Way - and began battling the blaze. The crews were hampered a little because the house is about 50 yards off of the road and the property is surrounded by a fence with a narrow opening. Only one truck could go through the opening at a time, so crews had to rotate the trucks in and out.
The fire was put out, but the interior of the house was destroyed. Firefighters from the Elko, Williston and District 11 stations assisted in putting out the fire.
