SALMON RIVER - A trailer was destroyed by fire early Tuesday morning on Christina Lane in Salmon River.
One man was asleep in the home at the time of the fire.
"When he awoke the living room area was in flames," Salmon River fire chief Carl Shaw told the Truro Daily News. "He got out and has been transported to hospital for observation."
The home is located in a trailer park with homes on each side of it. Firefighters from Salmon River and Valley-Kemptown worked hard to keep the fire from spreading to the nearby homes.
Firefighters were on scene until about 9 a.m.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
