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!!
Be sure to click on the links below these photos so you can see video of the actual fire.

    Thanks for sharing your information. We were searching for more.

  3. Heavens! Impressive. I feel sorry for those whose homes were destroyed. It is rather frightening also. They all went up pretty quickly it seems. A reminder to be very careful.

  4. Heavens! I feel sorry for those people who lost their homes. A good reminder of how fast those things go up in smoke and flame

    Thank you for posting so we, as family members of residents, could see the extent of damage done. I am so glad that no one was hurt! I hope they catch the sick person(s) that did such a horrible thing.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
    year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!
