Bart Township fire

Fire crews are at the scene of a mobile home fire in Bart Township in the 1700 block of Mine Road.

Multiple mobile homes used as storage buildings caught fire in Bart Township on Tuesday afternoon, according to a supervisor with Lancaster County-Wide Communications.

The fire began in the 1700 block of Mine Road near the Sadsbury Township line, west of Gap, at 1:37 p.m., the supervisor said. Firefighters arrived to find three mobile homes on fire, and the flames were also spreading into the nearby woods.

Firefighters got the fire under control around 2:15 p.m., according to LCWC.

All three mobile homes were unoccupied and used as storage buildings and were destroyed as a result of the fire, according to Travis Hoover, chief of Bart Township Fire Company.

Hoover didn't have an estimate of the property damage, and said no injuries were reported. Hoover also said he wasn't sure if there would be an investigation into the fire because the units were Amish-owned and do not typically require fire investigation.
