SEABROOK -- The state has called in crime scene investigators to probe a trailer fire that occurred this morning in Seabrook.
A coroners unit was called to the scene earlier, and police tape was erected around the trailer. Police have not confirmed that someone was killed in the fire, nor have police said what the nature of the crime is that is being investigated.
The fire broke out at about 10:11 a.m. today at 50 B Street, engulfing a trailer on the site. The neighborhood is located off Route 1 near the Hampton Falls line; it consists of 2 parallel streets lined with numerous mobile homes.
A resident of the trailer was visiting a neighbor across the street when the fire broke out. He tried unsuccessfully to gain access to the trailer in order to save his cats, according to Deputy Fire Chief Koko Perkins.
Perkins said the trailer was fully engulfed when firefifghters arrived. It was a particularly hard fire to fight due to gusty winds that flamed it.
"Because of the wind, we had a situation," Perkins said.
Firefighters and police remained on the scene this afternoon. The Attorney General's office was also called to the scene, as well as the state fire marshal.
The Daily News will publish more information as it becomes available.
