CABELL COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ -- A man and his dog were able to escape a fire that destroyed their trailer Monday morning.

The fire in the 5700 block of the Left Fork of Nine Mile Road near Lesage was reported about 11:15 a.m.

Captain Mike Lister says the man told firefighters that he woke up to smoke in the trailer. He then tried to put out the fire on his own, but it was too big so he called 911.

Right now firefighters don’t know how the fire started. The trailer did not have smoke detectors.

The Ohio River Road and Barboursville Volunteer Fire Departments put out the fire.
