70-year-old woman treated after RV fire

(ABC 6 News) – UPDATE: Firefighters extinguished an RV caught on fire in southeast Rochester Sunday night.

According to a press release from the Rochester Fire Department, it happened around 7:32 p.m. in the 5100 block of Highland Ridge Lane.

Fire crews arriving first on scene reported a fire on the inside of a motor home which was 20 feet from a house. They attempted to extinguish the fire with a fire extinguisher.

The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office said an exterior outlet panel was on fire.

The owner and a sheriff deputy also had attempted to extinguish the fire prior to RFD arrival with fire extinguishers.

The next fire crew arriving on scene pulled a fire attack line and completely extinguished the fire, which had grown and was burning through the side and roof of the vehicle.

A 70-year-old woman was treated for possible smoke inhalation, according to the OCSO.

The RV, a 1938 Jamboree Motor Home, suffered significant fire and water damage, estimated to cost $5,000.

RFD reminds everyone to make sure your home & RV have working smoke detectors. If your home is on fire, make sure to exit your home immediately and call 911 from a safe place.
