hi this is the home owner and here is my story my boyfriend worked at st lawrence zinc mines until they closed and so we moved to montana to work there at the mines and missed our family so we decided to move back. We take our little bit of money we had and bought the trailer we were very excited to have our own home. on thursday morning we finally got the trailer moved to owbow. there was no electric hooked up it was just a empty trailer . Jim Maloy says not suspisious well can he tell me how a trailer starts on fire by its self. It was only there for 3 days and now my boyfriend,our two kids and I are without a home.

I was there and it seemed very suspicious. Just not suspicious in their favor...I'm pretty sure some rich folk wouldn't waste their time to light it because there's a trailer on their road. I think a certain owner wanted some insurance money.

Now, I'm not saying this to piss you off. If you just stated it caught on fire, I would have sympathized for you, but when you go and blame other people when it's clearly obvious no body would go and set your home on fire because it doesn't meet their fancy life styles, then we have an issue.

That drunk scag kirker was there that night too saying (it was a good thing that it burnt it didnt fit in there anyway)thats a fact and idont care who likes it. The only one who lost anything was me and my family not you not anyone else. i had a lot of time and money in that mess and now im reminded by some worthless gossiping pile by the name of key board hero of that night. id like to blast you right in the head with a nice right hook then maybe you would make you think before you open your mouth.

the place cought fire in august w/o electric or gas hooked to it.obviously no reason for any heat to be on there. it was vacant at the time.

the only thing "clearly obvious" is that it had to be set on fire either intentionaly or by trespassers being careless with a cig. or match.

your other post blaming the owners saying they wanted the insurance that there wasnt any of to start with is just lame...if that was the case i hightly doubt they would be upset with the cause being not suspicious.

i hope the owners have bought and set up another trailor by now and are living in it. i also hope they have enough land to have the burnt out one sitting someplace out of their sight where all the neighbors can see it driving by.
