Fire investigators are still trying to determine what caused a Thursday trailer fire, where a couple of bicyclists stop to help.

A fire broke out at a mobile home near 63rd and Grover St. and it wasn't the neighbors who were the first to help. A couple riding on the Keystone Bike Trail happened to be passing to the west of the trailer park when they saw the smoke and stopped.

Virginia Wernik called 911. She says it's tough to see the people who lived in the trailer for about 17 years lose everything, but she admired the bravery of the couple who broke in to save the family dog. Wernick told the bikers to kick in the door. When they did, the dog came out a short time later.

"I think they're grateful we saved the dog, and I think that's her baby there."

No one was home when the fire started. The structure and contents of the trailer were a total loss.
