A fire in a trailer in Brosville caused headaches for first responders as they sifted through mounds of clutter as high as a person while attempting to locate the source of the blaze. Fire crews responded to reports of a structure fire shortly after noon on Tuesday at 135 Bonny Ave. When they arrived on the scene, they found the trailer smoldering, surrounded by cars, tires, squirrel traps and other debris in the yard outside. Brosville Community Volunteer Fire & Rescue Chief Kevin Farris said the garbage piles inside made it difficult to locate and contain the fire source.
