Pueblo Firefighters said three people were home when a trailer caught fire around 5:00am in the 2000 block of Belmont Avenue. One of the residents tried to put out the fire with an extinguisher but it didn't work. All three did make it out of the home safely.
Firefighters said they faced several challenges when fighting this fire, including its close proximity to other trailer homes, trees overhead and the only fire hydrant was nearly 1,200 feet away.
They were able to get the fire under control in 20 minutes, however the trailer home is destroyed. The fire is under investigation and a cause has not been determined at this time.
