Late night fire destroys RV in Temple

Local News

The Temple Fire Department says a late night fire destroyed a recreational vehicle.

Firefighters went to the 13000 block of FM 2305 around 10:28 p.m. Saturday night after getting a call about a fire. They found heavy smoke and flames shooting out of the “fifth wheel” type trailer.

Some neighbors witnessed the fire and called 911 when they saw the RV caught on fire.

“Our dog barked and when we looked out the window we saw the flames from the back field and then I called 9-1-1 immediately and then my husband went to look outback and he ran into neighbors next door who were already outback and they let us know the gentlemen had left previous so no one was there,” says neighbor Shae Stinson.

Fire fighters were able to control the fire, other personal belonging on the property were not damaged from the fire.

“We found out that the only thing that burned was the residence, the RV that he was staying in and nothing else was caught up in the fire,” says Stinson.

Shae Stinson was concerned for her neighbors, not knowing if anyone was in the property.

“I called 9-1-1 and I stayed on the phone with them for a while and the whole time I was on the phone with them there was little explosions and you can hear everything catching on fire and cracking and burning,” says Stinson.

Temple Fire and Rescue says that no one was inside of the property, and there are no reported injuries related to this fire.

“It was scary and terrifying and of course you just pray that no one was in there when it caught on fire. Thankfully no one was but at first you’re scared for that person like I was scared for him,” says Stinson.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
