Fire at Premier RV under investigation; damage estimated at $8 million
JUNCTION CITY, Ore. - The cause of the fire at Premier RV Services on Sunday remains under investigation.
Investigators are treating the blaze as an accident. Local firefighters have enlisted the help of the state fire marshal in the investigation.
Fire crews estimate the damage to the facility at $2 million, plus $6 million in damage to the contents.
Officials say the the burn started with just one RV inside the building, but neighboring motor homes soon caught fire as well.
"These coaches have fiber glass, foam, fuel, plastic, metals, and you compound that times 40 to 50, it takes a lot of personnel, it takes a lot of time and it takes a lot of water," said Crystal Riley, the Public Information Officer for Junction City Fire.
It took eight hours and several fire agencies to contain the flames.
