PIERPONT TOWNSHIP — A vacant trailer, located in the woods off Beckwith Road, was destroyed by fire Monday evening, said Pierpont Fire Chief Randy Woodard.

He said Cleveland Electric Iluminating Company turned off the electric several years ago so it is likely that the fire was set but the cause is still under investigation.

Woodard said the fire was called in around 8:30 p.m. and firefighters were on the scene till 10:30 p.m. He said firefighters from Monroe and Sheffield fought the blaze and Plymouth Township was on standby.
