Rescue crews responded to a trailer fire at Paradise Ranch in Buckingham Thursday morning.

According to the owner of the farm, the ranch itself is OK following explosions from the fire. He says an unoccupied fifth-wheel trailer on the property burst into flames for an unknown reason.

The owner said his whole family was gone up north, and a neighbor ran over after hearing the explosion, and reported seeing flames.

Tice and Bayshore Fire Department responded to the scene to assist.

The cause of the fire is unknown and still being investigated. Tice Fire Rescue said there were propane tanks in the trailer which continued to reignite, causing further explosions.
