This is just sad and a scary reminder to be vigilant. This is my number one fear with an RV.

Do you know what the cause was? Was anyone injurEd?

Most likely suspects are absorption refrigeration systems or wiring. I have even seen air conditioners burn the Coach up. Not sure what happened with the A/C units.

Oh my gosh. Hope everyone was out of that and are OK. What a shame. I fell so bad for the folks. You right. We do need to be vigilant.

That is really just sad to see.
Makes you realize just how little solid structure there is around you,
not the place to be in a roll over.

RV Fires

Fire Safety is overlooked so much. If you have the opportunity to attend a Good Sam or FMCA RV Jamboree,
I encourage you to attend their Fire Safety Seminars.
Check out Mac the Fire Guy My Business -

That RV could possibly of been saved if it had an automatic extinguisher mounted behind the refrigerator and/or
in the diesel engine compartment.
If you're going to be cheap and skimp on RV Safety, be sure your insurance - Life and RV are paid up.

Mac puts on a great seminar. I've attended it twice and learned a lot at both. I've posted here on IRV2 about him in the past.

Recently, our TRC Transfer Switch burned up.
According to TRC, when I called them, it was most likely caused by a loose wire. TRC said it was a very common occurance because as we drive over rough roads the screws that hold the wires down become loose and that causes heat and could cause a fire. The person I spoke with at TRC stated the connections should be checked at least once a year or more.
We were lucky that the breaker on the pedestal had tripped and the only damage was to the Transfer Switch. Had the breaker not tripped we would probably be dealing with an insurance adjuster.
Moral of the story is to make sure electrical connections are tight and like other posters have said, be vigilant.
