The Vermillion Fire Department responded to a reported trailer fire on Plum Street Thursday morning.
The hardwired smoke detector awoke the homeowner and he was able to crawl from his bedroom to a side door, escaping with one of his pet cats.
Heavy smoke was reported by first responders with 75 percent of the trailer enveloped. Crews worked to remove as much of the homeowners property as possible saving photos and documents.
The Red Cross has arranged temporary housing for the homeowner.
