Going, going gone. 5th wheel goes up in an instant!

This fifth wheel is gone in less than six minutes from the time of the first flame. By the time the fire department arrives, there’s virtually nothing left.

The good news is that at this RV park, the RV sites are far enough apart that the fire did not take out its neighbors. Think about your own experiences: how many times has your RV been situated just a few feet away from your neighbor? If that would have been the case here, your RV would have perished as well.

    As a trained fire fighter my first thought at the beginning of the video was where are the LP tanks on that thing. You can see them venting at about the 3 minute mark. And what were those fools at the beginning going to do with that white hose they were carrying to the motorhome? No way you could flow enough water to put that camper out. Lesson here is if you suspect a fire in your camper get out and get away from. Odds are you are NOT going to save it because of the materials it is made of.

      True BUT there were flames behind the motorhome next to it…that is where they were headed with the hose. I would have grabbed the hose off the MH and started spraying it down

    Has it been determined what started the fire, where this RV park is, and if a dog was actually left in the 5th wheel?

In this case, it’s lucky the RV park provided a lot of space between RVs. If not, who knows how many RVs would have been destroyed? Watch and weep. […]
