LONGVIEW, Wash. (KOIN 6) — A motor home fire threatened a detached garage, a home and a large cedar tree, but Longview and Cowlitz Fire crews managed to get the blaze in the $130,000 vehicle under wraps with limited resources.
Saturday at roughly 2:30 p.m., crews responded to the fire at 862 Lone Oak Road, up a steep and winding incline, and fought the fire with limited resources.
As more resources arrived, crews were able to extinguish the 2005 forty-foot coach style home.
Ten fire fighters worked on the blaze, that in the end did not damage the garage , the home, or the tree.
Crews believe the fire started in the rear refrigeration unit – the motorhome’s owner had just arrived home from a camping trip.
