News Release
Grants Pass Fire and Police Respond to RV Fire (Photo) - 05/20/19

Grants Pass Department of Public Safety Fire and Police along with Rural Metro Fire and AMR responded to a reported  RV fire at 1275 Rogue River Hwy. The fire was reportedly located in an RV used as a residence. Crews arrived to find heave smoke and flame coming from an RV located in close proximity to two mobile homes in the Fruitdale Trailer Park.

Fire crews were able to deploy hose lines to the fire while police officers assisted with traffic control and connecting to a fire hydrant. Police officers routinely train with firefighters to assist on the fire ground, freeing firefighters to concentrate on the fire. 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.

Rogue Valley Chaplains and American Red Cross were on scene assisting the occupants with housing and personal needs.

There were no injuries to civilians or firefighters. The cause of the fire was undetermined after investigation.
