Don was awakened by the sound of loud explosions about 2:45 am. He turned on the police scanner and when he heard the “RVs on fire” call to 1110 N Henness, we got dressed and hopped in the golf cart with camera in hand. There were huge flames lighting up the sky over the RV storage area as we approached. At this time, we still don’t know how many units were involved as it wasn’t safe to get any closer. You can bet we’ll be back over there as soon as the sun comes up so we get more photos.
It appears that at least 4 rigs were completely destroyed with fire damage to 3 or 4 more.
The Fire Department did a fantastic job of handling this fire. They had the huge flames under control and completely out within the hour. They did an awesome job! Without their fast and highly professional response, there would have been a lot more damage. Their lives were also at risk as they neared the flames due to the multiple propane tanks exploding and the volume of fuel that was in the RVs themselves. We salute our Fire Department!!
