LUMBY – A fire destroyed a motorhome in rural Lumby yesterday afternoon, but firefighters, and someone with a garden hose, kept the flames from spreading.

Black smoke billowed from the burning RV on a property near Dyfferin Road behind the industrial park just east of the village.

The motorhome was fully engulfed in flames when crews arrived just before 4 p.m., Oct. 18, according to Lumby fire chief Tony Clayton.

Firefighters put out the burning motorhome and kept the fire from spreading to the surrounding grass and trees, and a nearby shed, he says.

Clayton says someone on the small farm was keeping the shed wet with a garden hose when firefighters got there.

He says the RV was completely destroyed, adding it was insured.

Investigators will be looking for the cause of the fire.
