TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - Two RVs and one travel trailer were destroyed by a fire at Cactus Country RV, located at 10195 S. Houghton Road near Houghton Road and Interstate 10, Corona de Tucson Fire Department spokesman Todd Cupell said.

Total damage done:

  • 2 RVs destroyed
  • 1 travel trailer destroyed
  • 1 motorhome significantly damaged
  • 1 toy box trailer significantly damaged

Initial reports indicated that it will be ruled an accidental fire, Cupell says.

Reports stated there were people working on the engine of one of the motorhomes before the fire started. They had fire extinguishers on standby, but they weren't enough.

The first fire engine had 500 gallons of water, but ran out. Crews waited three to four minutes for a water tender to replenish the water supply.

The fire spread rapidly due to the wind, according to Cupell.
