Vancouver firefighters responded to two fires within a half-hour Wednesday night, one that ruined a motor home and a pickup truck.

At 8:21 p.m., firefighters went to Northeast 33rd Circle and 62nd Avenue, north of Fourth Plain Boulevard and near state Highway 500. They found an older and unlicensed motor home, a truck and a large fir tree in flames.

Eighteen firefighters put out the fire, and a fire marshal was on the scene at The Columbian’s press time. No one was reported injured, Capt. Kevin Murray said.

At 8:46 p.m., firefighters responded to a second-story fire in a condo at Hampton Downs, 5301 Plomondon St. Murray said a bedroom was on fire. He said no one was injured and was not certain if anyone was in the condo when the fire broke out.

More details were expected to be released Thursday morning and will be available on online.

Fire destroyed two motor homes earlier Wednesday at Sam’s Good RV Park.
