A fire in Ridgefield on Monday morning destroyed a recreational vehicle and damaged a boat, motor home and cars, according to Clark County Fire & Rescue.

Emergency crews were dispatched around 8:15 a.m. to 19515 N.E. 10th Ave. for the report of a motor home or trailer on fire, according to a news release.

A called told 911 dispatchers that “propane tanks were exploding and that nearby cars and a boat were catching fire,” the release says.

The first fire engine arrived at the address in about seven minutes and found a 32-foot, fifth-wheel style travel trailer engulfed in flames, according to the fire department. A nearby fiberglass boat was catching fire, and heat had already damaged two cars and a motor home.

More resources were called in to help extinguish the blaze, including a water tender carrying 2,500 gallons of water.

No structures were destroyed or damaged, and no one was hurt by the fire, officials said.

The Clark County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause.
