For the record...

The RV exploded which led to the fire that consumed what was left of the RV, the adjacent tree, and car parked next to it. We felt the heat of the blast and it shook the building we were inside.

There was a strange sound leading up to the explosion, like a motor being revved. When we were about to investigate, that's when the blast occurred.

This is our second call in 2 months to the fire department over something being lit on fire and now an explosion due to very irresponsible people living in these RVs parked along the road over this past year. This is not fair to the businesses or residents of this area.


Jesus Christ takes it very seriously when you mock the poor
