Trailer Fire

A massive fire destroys a home on Rockford’s south side Thursday morning. Flames poured out of a vacant trailer home on Blackhawk Island. Firefighters say the blaze had already run its course by the time they arrived.

Investigators believe it was accidentally sparked by a repair man. He escaped without injury. Blackhawk Island, by the way,- is just north of the airport on south Main Street.
