This evening before 5:30, we responded to what was reported as a residential structure fire on South Road in Cherry Grove. While enroute it was reported to be a house or motor home on fire. Crews arrived shortly after to find a motorhome engulfed in flames. Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the fire and prevent it from spreading. The occupants of the motorhome was transported to a local hospital with minor smoke inhalation. The cause of the fire is under investigation, the motorhome is a total loss.

Please remember, never re-enter a structure or vehicle if it is on fire. Things can be replaced, you can’t.

I've been thinking what to say about this fire.....
It could happen to any of us.
Be careful out there.
Whatever caused it...


(My guess.....the old RV absorbtion fridge. )
Think I can make out where it's vents were in the most scorched part.
Not many here have those but some do.
There are fire suppression kits designed for these units.
Stay Tuned

I would guess poor maintenance or modification of whatever system caused it but probably the fridge. Nothing last forever and those burners do rust out.

                                     WHAT IS IT?????
 
I DO WONDER HOW A " 3 WAY FRIG " LIKE IS IN THE ALINER USES PROPANE TO MAKE A  FRIG COLD.
COUNTING 3 POPUPS THIS IS MY 10th TRAVEL TRAILER.  SOME HAD ELEC. AND/OR PROPANE FRIG'S, I HAVE JUST ALWAYS USED ELEC.

I DO HOPE THE OWNERS ARE OK AND HAVE SOME WHERE TO STAY.
