PONTOTOC, Miss. (WTVA) - The Ecru Fire Department investigated a fire happening at an abandoned trailer early Wednesday evening on Mounce Road.

No injuries were reported according to Pontotoc Fire Coordinator Adam Patton. 

Neighbors around the area say they may have an idea of how the blaze began.

Residents tell WTVA they saw a male riding a golf cart just minutes before the trailer went up in flames.

One neighbor says the trailer had been abandon for years and does not see how it could catch fire unless it was started intentionally.

Patton says the cause of the fire is under investigation.
