Fire trucks leave Christmas parade in Trinity to go to fire

By Dr. Sharon Schuetz

Trinity residents will remember the Christmas Parade for a long time after the firetrucks raced from the starting point at Avalon to answer a call for a home on fire. The trucks were decorated and covered in lights with students on top prepared for the trek down Highway 19 to the other end of town. Instead, they made the trip in record time with some of them stopping at the firehouse to unload passengers before continuing to the fire. The burning home located on Aspin Street was a mobile home fully engulfed in flames. They were able to contain the fire but unable to save the home. The home was vacant, so, fortunately, the loss was limited. Arson is suspected.
