Potter fire battled Sunday; no injuries occurred

(KAIR)--An early Sunday morning Potter fire, involving a camper and a shed, was battled successfully by firefighters, with no injuries reported despite the objects being considered a toal loss.

Dustin Martin, Fire Chief for Atchison County Rural Fire District #4, Mt. Pleasant, told MSC News his crew arrived on the scene around 4:15 Sunday morning, with fire fighters at first working to keep the fire from spreading to another shed, and occupied trailer home, which stood nearby the ones ablaze.

The fire, after it was kept from spreading, was then extinguished by the crews on-sight, with the fire scene, located in mid-town Potter, cleared by around 7:00 Sunday morning.

Martin credits the assistance provided during the effort by Walnut Township fire fighters.

The older model trailer which burned may have been being utilized as a shelter, but no one was inside at the time of the fire.
