Multiple local fire departments responded to a structure fire late Wednesday night in the Village of South Zanesville.

According to South Zanesville Fire Chief Russ Taylor, the call was received around 11:30 p.m. of a trailer fire in the southern part of the village.

There is an estimated $3,000 of damage and the family does not have insurance according to Taylor.

Until the home can be cleared of smoke, Taylor said the fire department planned to get the family in touch with the American Red Cross.
