Fire destroys AJ trailer; woman severely burned


An overnight fire ravaged a mobile home in Apache Junction Saturday night.

Fire spokesman Dave Montgomery said a woman inside the home during sustained second-degree burns to 25 percent of her body.

Her boyfriend, Tyler Brown, told CBS 5 News he tried to help her get out of the burning trailer.

Brown said his girlfriend is in stable condition at Maricopa County Burn Center. He said she ran back into the trailer to grab some personal belongings.

They had been living in the mobile home for the last three years. Throughout the day, neighbors had been dropping off supplies for them.

Brown said they do not have insurance and their home is a complete loss.

You can help the family out by contacting Donta Colbert, a son who lived with Brown and his girlfriend, at 602-460-0750 or through email:
