What a bummer, as long as there were no injuries, the rest is just stuff. Looks like, from one of the photos, that the fire started around the shore power connection.

It's never good when you see a fire. As said above everyone was safe and that is what matters.

The gray drain issue at the end of the photos was probably from leaving the gray valve open while camped. I like to let mine fill so that I get a good flush when I dump it.
