OLIVER - Oliver firefighters battled a motorhome blaze early Sunday morning.

Oliver Fire Department spokesperson Rob Graham says personnel responded to a dispatch callout for a car fire around 2:10 a.m Sunday morning, Feb. 5.

Firefighters arrived at the River Road location to find a motorhome fully engulfed.

“There wasn’t too much left of it by the time we got there, in terms of saving anything,” Graham says.

Crews hosed it down carefully, as live power lines had come down nearby.

Graham says the cause of the blaze at this point is undetermined, adding the fire burned so completely there may be difficulty determining a cause.
