RV Fire Savage and Main in Lamar

A fire destroyed a recreational vehicle at 2400 South Main Street at Main and Savage in Lamar this past Friday evening. Lamar Fire and Ambulance responded to the call along the highway at 7:16pm.  The fire apparently started in the engine compartment and spread to the rest of the camper as it was being moved away from the road.  The owner was eastbound on Savage Avenue when he noticed flames and smoke from under the hood.  He used a portable fire extinguisher on the engine fire.

The Department report states that by the time fire engines were on the scene, the camper was completely engulfed by smoke and fire. According to the report, the owner said embers from the engine fire spread to the rest of the vehicle.

The fire to the exterior of the vehicle was brought under control and responders entered the living compartment to extinguish the fire from the interior of the camper. There were no injuries from the incident.  Law enforcement officers stated they saw an initial ‘flash’ of fire and then the RV was completely engulfed with flames.
