A fifth wheel was destroyed after catching on fire on Monday.
Fire Marshal Ray Shoufler of Douglas County Fire District No. 2 says multiple calls from drivers on Interstate Five came in around 12:00 p.m. reporting the fire at the Douglas County Fairgrounds RV Park. Shoufler says the crews arrived to find the fifth wheel fully involved with fire.
Shoufler says the RV was being used as a residence but no one was home when the fire began, and no one was hurt.
Shoufler says the cause of the fire has not been determined but appears to be accidental.
Shoufler says the incident serves as a reminder for people to check their smoke alarms and keep all sources of heat at least three feet away from any combustible items.
