BROADALBIN — Fire crews were able to quickly extinguish a small mobile home fire Tuesday morning at the Indian Village Trailer Park on Union Mills Road.

Fulton County Fire Coordinator Steve Santa Maria said that upon arrival, Broadalbin-Kennyetto Fire Company Chief Scott Hall and firefighter Rob Lindsey were able to make entry inside the home in which there was a small fire in the front of the house.

“They were able to extinguish it relatively quickly,” Santa Maria said. “[It was] a real good job by the fire department getting inside and getting it put out.”

He said fire crews did a good job getting the fire contained in one area of the trailer.

Santa Maria said there were five people in the home at the time the fire occurred. Everyone, including their dog, made it out of the home. They did sustain smoke related injuries and one woman’s hair was singed. Everyone was treated at the scene for their injuries.

Santa Maria said everyone was ok. No one was sent to the hospital.

He said the home was not a total loss and should be able to be repaired.

“The fire damage was to the bedroom area, and heat and smoke damage to the rest of the home,” Santa Maria said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the state police, the New York State Fire Prevention and Control and the Fulton County Fire Coordinator’s office.

Santa Maria said they are waiting on a few more statements.

Responding to the scene were Broadalbin-Kennyetto Fire Company, Perth Volunteer Fire Department, the Fulton County Fire Coordinator’s Office and the Greater Amsterdam Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
