Trailer ruled total loss after fire in Northeast mobile home park

Fire reported just after 2 a.m. at Jasper Mobile Home Park

SAN ANTONIO – A mobile home is said to be a total loss following a fire at a mobile home park in northeast Bexar County early Thursday morning.

The fire was called in just after 2 a.m. at the Jasper Mobile Home Park, which is located in the 6700 block of Walzem Road.

Firefighters said when they arrived, they found the trailer fully engulfed.

No one was inside the trailer at the time of the fire, officials said, but neighbors did say they witnessed a man go in and out of the trailer during the day. Officials confirmed that the mobile home was unoccupied. 

Bexar County fire marshal investigators confirmed that the fire was believed to be intentional. However, the motive behind the fire remains unclear. 

Jasper Mobile Home Park owner John Ripley said he has no doubt that the fire was set on purpose. 

"There's no doubt that they're being set on fire on purpose. The other two were burnt down when it was very warm out," Ripley said.
