A cause of the explosion and fire, west of Fort Lupton, was not immediately released. The incident, which happened about 8 p.m., is under investigation.
Teresa Anderson, who owns the nearby B Bold Ranch RV Park and Storage, told The Associated Press she heard "a big boom, one big boom" just after 8 p.m. The trailer was fully engulfed in flames when deputies arrived.
