Multiple agencies responded to an RV fire on Rogue River Highway Monday afternoon.

The 911 call came in just after 1:30 p.m. The RV was reportedly being used as a residence. Grants Pass Department of Public Safety Fire and Police, along with Rural Metro Fire and AMR crews arrived to find heavy smoke and flames coming from an RV sitting in close proximity to two mobile homes at the Fruitdale Trailer Park.

Fire crews were able to deploy hose lines to the fire while police officers assisted with traffic control and connecting the hose lines to a fire hydrant.

The fire was quickly extinguished with minor damage to two adjacent mobile homes. Unfortunately, the RV and all of its contents were a total loss.

There were no reported injuries from the incident. An investigation was conducted at the scene after the flames were extinguished, however, the cause of the fire is still undetermined, according to the GPDPS.
