Fire investigators are still trying to figure out what caused a fire at a Daggett County trailer home Christmas afternoon.

The fire burned Tammy Reynolds' Manila home to the ground. Two people were inside at the time the fire started. Both made it out without any injuries, but couldn't find their two dogs.

When firefighters with the Manila Volunteer Fire Department arrived, winds were blowing between 40 to 50 miles per hour, making putting out the fire difficult.

After the fire was out, the two dogs were found inside the trailer. Both dogs died.

Investigators are still trying to determine what sparked the fire. Daggett County chief deputy John Martineau says the Manila community is helping Reynolds.

Chief Martineau says the Red Cross has also been contacted to help her with shelter, food and clothes.
