LA PINE, OR -- Two people lost everything they own, when a fire destroyed their motor home in La Pine, Saturday night. When firefighters arrived at the Wickiup Junction Gas station, at about 8:15 p.m., they found the RV fully engulfed, with flames spreading to trees and a fence.
They quickly put out the blaze but the vehicle was a total loss. The couple said they’d had trouble keeping the RV running, and were trying to start it when the fire broke out in the engine compartment. A gas station employee tried to help them put out the flames with several fire extinguishers, but were unsuccessful.
No one was hurt, but the couple says the RV wasn't insured and they have no other housing. The Sheriff’s Office took them to the Calvary Chapel warming shelter; the Red Cross is helping, as well.
