[ARCHIVED] Watertown Fire Rescue Responds to a Camper Fire


On 05/09/2022 at approximately 12:40 PM Watertown Fire Rescue was dispatched to the area of 216 2nd St SW for a camper that was on fire.  Upon arrival fire crews found a 5th wheel camper heavily involved in fire in the alley.  There were also two garages and a carport in close proximity that were exposed to the fire as well.  Crews pulled multiple handlines to fight the fire and protect the adjacent buildings. Firefighting efforts were difficult due to 2 propane cylinders burning in the camper.  The camper was considered a total loss.  One garage had suffered moderate smoke damage as well as extensive damage to the exterior wall.  The carport and other garage suffered moderate to mild damage as well.  Watertown Fire Rescue responded with two engines, an ambulance, and a command vehicle.  Crews remained on scene for approximately 2 hours.
