Blind KG musician dies in trailer fire

A popular blind King George musician died in a Saturday fire at his trailer home on Pumpkin Neck Road. The trailer was already enveloped in flames when the first units of the King George Fire and Rescue Services arrived on the scene just off State Route 218.

The victim of the fire was identified by King George Fire Chief David Moody as Lawrence Robert “Bobby” Self. Self, who was 80 years old, was known for playing the harmonica with a local bluegrass band and often played with various bands at local civic clubs in the area.

Self was trapped in the trailer when King George Fire, Rescue and Emergency Services got to the scene of the blaze. Fire trucks and rescue units from King George responded, along with units from the Navy base at Dahlgren, Westmoreland County and Charles County, Md.

“Our fire/rescue team worked diligently in order to try and save Mr. Self, but due to the intensity and rapid spread of fire before our crews arrived made this effort unsuccessful,” Moody said.

“Our Department, along with our mutual-aid partners remained on-scene for several hours extinguishing the fire and performed salvage and overhaul operations in order to save any personal belongings.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Self family during their time of need,” Moody said.

Moody said the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
