Two structures and a vehicle were totally destroyed Friday afternoon after a structure fire near Udall.

A Cowley County deputy en route to the scene said he could see smoke from K-15 Highway as he was turning on to 72nd Road, according to scanner communications.

The Udall Fire Department arrived just after 2 p.m. to 6201 72nd Road, with 3/4 of a single-wide trailer house on fire, according to Cowley County District IV Fire Chief Randy Hoffman. The two male residents made it out of the house safely after the fire started while cooking.

The Cowley County Fire District IV posted on Facebook shortly after the fire started advising potential nearby traffic to avoid the area near 51st and 72nd roads due to incoming emergency responders.

Winfield, Mulvane and Belle Plaine firefighters and EMS responded for mutual aid. Westar Energy also responded due to power lines down.

Hoffman said that the trailer house, the empty structure next to it, and a vehicle were all a total loss, with value estimated at $30,000.

The American Red Cross was notified for assistance due to the parties not having insurance on the property, Hoffman said.
