Fire engulfs recreational vehicle in South Surrey

No injuries were reported in Tuesday morning fire at a South Surrey manufactured-home community

A fire Tuesday morning at a South Surrey manufactured-home community has destroyed a 34-foot recreational vehicle.

Surrey Fire Services assistant Chief Chris Keon said the blaze at the Breakaway Bays complex, in the 1800-block of 160 Street, was reported by the vehicle’s owner just before 11:30 a.m.

“Apparently, someone was cooking in the unit when it started,” Keon told Peace Arch News.

The vehicle was parked in an RV storage yard at the complex.

Witnesses reported hearing what sounded like an explosion before tall flames consumed the vehicle.

No injuries were reported and fire crews were able to knock down the fire in short order, however, damage was extensive, said Keon.

“It’s going to get towed,” Keon said.
