Mobile Home Destroyed, Three Arrested After Fire

Posted: Updated:

GERONIMO Okla_ Tuesday, all that's left of a Geronimo trailer home is a pile of rubble.

When firefighters arrived at the scene, they found three men standing outside the burning home. All three of them were later arrested after drug paraphernalia that included meth and marijuana were found inside the trailer. However, investigators have not said if the drugs contributed to the start of the fire.

Geronimo Mayor Edward Mounts said he can only hope that this fire wasn't ignited because of drug activity. 

"Meth is a really bad problem," Mounts said. "No matter how small it is, it's a problem. I think it has gotten to be a bigger problem over the years, and we are just like any other town, unfortunately."

Authorities say the blaze took nearly two hours to contain. Comanche County deputies were called in after they discovered the drug paraphernalia inside. 30-year-old John Arthur Lewis, 52-year-old John Stanton Lewis were charged with unlawful possession of paraphernalia. The name of the third man has not been released.
