No one injured in RV fire

PORT ANGELES — No one was injured following an RV fire at Race and Georgiana streets near Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles.

A fire began in the engine compartment when the driver started the RV on Wednesday morning, and it rapidly spread to the RV’s interior shortly before 9 a.m., Port Angeles Assistant Fire Chief Mike Sanders wrote in an email.

Firefighters rapidly extinguished the fire and no one was injured, although there was substantial damage to the vehicle and its contents throughout, Sanders wrote.

“Despite the damage, firefighters were able to save some personal and sentimental items and return those to the RV occupants,” the email stated.

The fire’s cause is undetermined but appeared to be accidental, Sanders said.

The fire department responded with one fire engine, one medic unit and four personnel.
