Firefighters fight blaze engulfing RVs

Firefighters quickly extinguished a blaze that consumed two large recreational vehicles this afternoon in the northwestern side of the Las Vegas Valley.

Las Vegas Fire & Rescue spokesman Tim Szymanski said the fire erupted at about 12:30 p.m. behind a house in the 9330 block of West Fisher Avenue, near Ann and Fort Apache roads.

When firefighters arrived, both RVs were enveloped in flames and wind was blowing the flames toward a nearby barn.

There were no fire hydrants nearby, so firefighters initially used water inside the tanks of their fire trucks to tackle the blaze. Eventually, crews found a fire hydrant near the property, used it to refill their fire engines and continued to fight the blaze.

The fire was contained within 20 minutes, Symanski said. The barn only sustained slight exterior damage, and the flames did not reach the home. No one was injured.

Officials have not yet determined what sparked the fire or how much damage it caused.
