Quick Attack on RV Fire

Kingman, Az -

On July 12, 2014 at 7:30 AM, Pinion Pine firefighters received an alarm for a commercial vehicle fire at exit 59 on Interstate 40 which brought the response of Engine 511, Brush 526 and Chief 501. Additional information was received, stating the fire was going to be in an RV not a commercial vehicle. The first unit arrived on scene in 4 minutes, just south of Interstate 40 on DW Ranch Rd to find an RV with smoke and fire showing from the front door.

Firefighters from B526 pulled an 1-1/2 inch attack line and made entry into the RV, quickly knocking the fire down. Control was obtained in 10 minutes and firefighters from E511 performed overhaul. Unfortunately, much of the RV was destroyed by smoke and fire damage. The cause of the fire was undetermined after investigation and no injuries were reported.
