Members of the Fairmont and Windermere Fire Departments responded to a structure fire at the Spruce Grove RV Park and Campground in Fairmont this afternoon. 

On arrival, crews found an RV trailer and attached addition engulfed in flames. “We’d like to thank the staff from the campground and resort, who immediately jumped into action while safely trying to knock back the fire until we arrived,” says Columbia Valley rural fire and rescue deputy chief Jon Tames. “Once on scene, our crew did an excellent job of keeping the fire contained to the one unit, particularly given the windy, hot conditions today.” 

Eight Fairmont firefighters and three apparatus from Fairmont along with four firefighters and two apparatus from Windermere responded to the call and were on site until approximately 7:30 p.m. The fire, which broke out when the occupants were not home, completely destroyed the RV and addition. Fortunately, there were no injuries. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
