WINTHROP — A Winthrop woman lost her travel trailer to fire after waking early Saturday to the smell of smoke, fire officials said.
The woman went outside to investigate and discovered a fire burning under the trailer and called for help.
Okanogan County Fire District 6 responded to the fully involved structure fire on Rust Road at 5 a.m. and were unable to save the trailer or an overhead structure.
Firefighters used about 10,000 gallons of water to keep a propane tank at the trailer from exploding, a news release from the fire department said.
Brian McAuliffe, division chief for the fire district, said the woman is from Ellensburg, and uses the trailer as a second home.
The occupant was unharmed, and the cause of the fire is not yet determined.
