Roaring blaze destroys RV parked outside Ocala residence

A blaze destroyed a recreational vehicle parked in an Ocala neighborhood Sunday afternoon.

Multiple crews from Ocala Fire Rescue at 3:48 p.m. responded to the blaze in the 1700 block of S.E. 12th Avenue. Engine 3 arrived three minutes later and its crew reported a parked RV fully engulfed in flames. Using the truck’s pre-connected hose line, firefighters quickly launched an aggressive attack to extinguish the fire, which is shown above in a video shot by C. Susdorf.

The fire was under control within two minutes of the crews arrival on scene, which prevented the flames from becoming a threat to neighboring structures. No injuries were reported in the blaze and it remains under investigation. Firefighters from Marion County Fire Rescue also responded to the incident.
