A fire destroyed an RV behind a Bellingham home Monday afternoon, Sept. 26.
A neighbor, Cari Duffy, said she noticed white smoke drifting from a backyard at 3206 Cherrywood Ave. around 1 p.m.
Moments later an Itasca Cambria motorhome parked next to a storage shed behind the house erupted into flames with two or three loud explosions. A plume of black smoke could be seen from a few miles away in downtown Bellingham.
City firefighters knocked down the flames in about 10 minutes. The motorhome was a total loss. No one was hurt, and nearby structures had no significant damage, said Battalion Chief Cary Gustafson of the Bellingham Fire Department.
