Fire in storage area

Langston ALB, This large storage shed with a class A DP, trailer, pontoon boat, and a large party area was ablaze at 7:30am and it was miles from the nearest fire department so it was gone before the trucks arrived. They pulled the red truck away but the front was melted. The DP was just a pile of melted metal.

This kind of loss is hard to recover from, regardless of how good the insurance is, and I sure hope it is....

Old regional joke.

Two guys are sitting in their attorney's waiting room. The first discloses that he's been charged with arson. The second says his property was destroyed by Mt. St. Helens. The first asks: "How do you start a volcano?"

could have been as simple as a battery charger. Lots of things in a storage like that to provide a source of ignition, and of course the majority of the contents have or are some form of accelerant. It’s common for one of these to be fully involved before the FD gets there. My guess is this was a tragic loss to the owner.

That's one of the reasons I don't like leaving our rig plugged in 24/7 while in storage.
