Mobile Home Fire

Units were called to a possible mobile home fire.  The mobile home was vacant and welders were removing a tongue on the mobile home and putting on a new one when sparks ignited grass under the mobile home.  The mobile home was to be sold about 2 hours after the call came in.  The welders advised that they did not have a fire extinguisher on their truck.   Fire was accelerated by high winds that blew under the trailer.  Units from Troutman, Monticello, and West Iredell, Iredell County Air Van responded.
