OTISVILLE - Some carnival equipment was badly burned after a fire in Orange County Sunday evening.

Officials say the fire started on a flatbed trailer just before midnight, and was burning strong when they got to Mount Hope Park on Finchville Turnpike in Otisville.

Orange County investigators say the fire does not appear suspicious, and may have started because of a problem with the flatbed trailer's brakes.

A forklift and ticket booth were badly damaged in the fire.  There was also some heat damage to parts of a unassembled ride.

The fair is scheduled to begin next week.
