House trailer destroyed by fire

LISBON – A double-wide house trailer on Steubenville Pike was destroyed by a fire of undetermined origin on Wednesday morning, according to Lisbon Fire Chief Dave Lewton.

He said a neighbor of Mike Tullis reported at 8:19 a.m. that Tullis’ home was on fire. Six firefighters responded, but the home was fully engulfed in flames by the time they arrived. Tullis was not home at the time but his dog, a Chihuahua, is believed to have perished in the blaze.

The home was partially insured.

Lewton said the home had a wood-burner furnace system but the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
