Fifth Wheel Fire

My fire department was called to Tranter's Creek RV Resort near Washington NC for a fifth wheel fire last nigh at 12
:20 AM. The owner was in the RV at the time. He was able to get out safely and had the for thought to get his 4 20 lb. LP gas cylinders away from the fire. I do not have any information about what caused the fire.
Here is a link to my Web Shots album with pictures of the fire scene.

Glad to hear no one was hurt...it's always pretty sobering to see how fast these RV's can be destroyed by fire. When we are on the road, we test our detectors weekly...maybe we should test more often?? Bob

Good job putting that out and actually saving that much of it .I have been a firefighter for over 20 years now Deputy Chief and any time you can walk away with that much left you have done a great job
