No injuries reported in Rostraver mobile home blaze

Paul Peirce

No injuries were reported Tuesday afternoon when a fire extensively damaged a mobile home in Rostraver.

The fire occurred about 12:50 p.m. at the home along Knight Drive in the Port Royal Village, according to dispatchers.

“The resident was able to get out of the home without any injury. The fire spread up into the eaves and went through the roof,” said Rostraver Central Fire Department Chief Vince Campbell.

Multiple units from the Rostraver, Smithton and Sutersville fire department were able to quickly douse the blaze upon arrival, Campbell said.

The cause of the remains under investigation, but is believed to be accidental, Campbell said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
