Fully Engulfed RV Fire Breaks Out In Castaic

A fully engulfed RV fire broke out in Castaic Wednesday afternoon, prompting a response from firefighters with the Los Angeles County Fire Department, officials said. 

Around 2:25 p.m. Wednesday, firefighters with the Los Angeles County Fire Department received reports of a large vehicle fire on the 31000 block of The Old Road in Castaic, according to officials. 

“(It) came out as a motorhome in a plot,” said Chris Thomas, dispatch supervisor for the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

When units arrived on scene, they discovered that an RV had become fully engulfed in flames on the 26000 block of Tapia Canyon Road.

“I spent a year working on this thing, and probably at least $2,000 fixing it up,” the owner of the RV said to a KHTS Reporter on scene. “I was just getting ready to take it (to) visit family over Christmas. I was working on the generator. I don’t know what happened, it just sort of popped, and I looked up and just saw orange light in the window.”

Crews were able to prevent the fire from spreading to nearby brush, according to officials. 

No ambulances were dispatched, and no injuries were reported as a result of the blaze.
