Hey all, last Thursday an RV fire broke out at the park we are at and our Dash Cam caught it right down to us and a few other RV'er taking action. We are glad we remembered the dash cam footage before it was overwritten. The video is narrated by myself recounting what took place.
Video is posted on our blog and takes place over 16 mins and yet, the dog was saved. (We still are not sure how she survived based on the time involved and the size of the fire as you will see.)
Per the fire inspector, this fire is believed to have been caused by a Norcold fridge that had a recall. To us, in our humble opinion, that surely seemed to be the case. The RV was a total loss and the owner was a full timer.
Three chemical extinguishers and three foam extinguishers along with two garden hoses were used to knock down the fire and keep it at bay until the fire department arrived.
Good Samaritans RV’ers: David & Brenda Bott, Jim Andrews, John (man in red) and Unknown "Man on Roof". Unseen is John’s wife Jone who brought over water at the end for the dog “Zoey” and to poor over my head to get the glass off of it as well as help flush my eyes.
We love the RV community that comes with this lifestyle this is an perfect example as to why RV'ers are great people that come together to help someone, or something, in need.
Here is the post...
