Fire destroys camper

6-6-14 Camper FireBy Pat Maurer

A Monday fire destroyed a 1997 Jayco Camper at an address on Clinton Road near the 4000 block of North Clare Avenue.

Harrison Fire Chief Pat Agin said no one was in the camper at the time, and the cause of the fire has not been determined.  He said the travel trailer was a total loss. Reports that the camper “blew up” are not true, he added. “There was no evidence of an explosion,” he said.

Reportedly the camper belonged to a friend of the property owner and had been dropped off at the property near Harrison to be “fixed up.” Officials have said the fire is suspicious because there was no electric hookup to the 30 foot travel trailer.

The fire is still under investigation, Agin said.
