One of the two RV campers was being lived in, but no one was home at the time of the fire, he told KTW, adding he was not sure how many people were displaced because of the fire.

No one was injured, but both trailers sustained damage.

“One was down to the frame rails, the other one, four walls were still standing,” Cooper said. No cause has yet been determined.

The incident marks the third time an RV camper has caught fire in that area of Salish Road in less than a month.

On June 14, firefighters responded to an RV fire behind a home at 1 p.m.

The RV was completely gutted and a nearby house sustained some heat damage to its vinyl siding, but no one was in the trailer at the time of the blaze.
