Sorry, I should have mentioned that the post I got this from said there were no injuries.

What a mess that is, but as long as every one got away from it that's all that really matters.

I guess i should have posted that here, also. For more info- a friend shot those photos as his coach was a couple coaches away. The couple had just bought that coach and it had 80 miles on it. they were there to camp out with some firends. They pulled up, stopped and went out side to get lawn chairs, carpet, etc. Then it ignited. If you notice, he had not even plugged the coach in. The arson squad was dispatched. From what my friend said, the dealer was not very sympathetic. It was a Four Winds coach.

man that is horrible
interesting how the pictures look like the fd sort of did nothing for a few
then decided to cool it off.

we had one burn here and the ammonia gave off some really cool blue flames, it took just a few minutes to be just a smoking frame

Glad nobody was injured.

Any indication how this started?

We watched a fiver burn last fall, seems the owner was despondent and tried to commit suicide, and then chickened out without being hurt.

I felt sorry for the unit’s parked close-by as they suffered some damage.

I believe fire dept's try to control an RV blaze rather put it out, just too hot and dangerous.

ya right dispatch the arson squad. Guy buys a coach drives it 80 miles then torches it. I don't think so!! Looks like a gas coach did the fire start up by the engine or was it a refrigerator fire? Glad everyone got out alright.

I don't think Fred is inferring anything here.
Hopefully there was enough left for a forensics on the unit.

Arson Squad also dies the investigations.. Fire Forensics would be a better name..

Glad no one was hurt in that. Real lucky no one was inside.. looks like it went up fast.

Hard to tell from the pictures. If I'm right, that looks like the 34B model, which would put the fridge (I think Dometic?) in the middle of the coach. Thank goodness nobody (human or pet!) was hurt. This just scares the heck out of me....
