A fire that began in a burn barrel burned out of control Monday, destroying a trailer and threatening a Burton business.
Firefighters were called to Chavis Moving and Storage on Bay Pines Road about 2:15 p.m., said Dan Byrne, Burton Fire District spokesman.
Combustibles left near the barrel caused flames to spread quickly and engulf a nearby trailer, Byrne said.
The trailer was destroyed, but firefighters put out the blaze before it consumed the business, he said.
