A double-wide trailer home sustained heavy damage in a fire Friday afternoon east of Ark City.

The residence was located just north of Lionís Club Park on 85th Rd. Someone was moving into the trailer at the time of the blaze and was able to escape safely.

The person moving in smelled smoke and called 911.

No injuries were reported. The fire started just after 1 p.m.

Ark City fire chief Bobby Wolfe said the house was likely a total loss, though some items inside were salvageable.
