Malfunctioning hot tub pump caused Funkstown trailer fire
May 29, 2013
Funkstown — A malfunctioning hot tub pump caused a fire that displaced the owner of a trailer Monday morning on West Poplar Street in Funkstown, the Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office said.

The fire destroyed the residence, causing an estimated $30,000 in damages to the structure and $5,000 in damages to the contents, according to a Fire Marshal’s Office news release.

The trailer was located at 20 W. Poplar St., Lot No. 19.

Authorities said the fire, which was reported at 7:51 a.m. by a neighbor, started in an attached enclosed room.

Forty-three firefighters from Funkstown, Halfway and Hagerstown took about 35 minutes to get the fire under control.

The owner of the trailer, who was named by fire officials as Bonnie Mowen, was being assisted by the American Red Cross, according to the release.
