COLUMBIA — A recreational vehicle fire that sparked late Sunday night at Sunset Mobile Home Park displaced a family of two.
Columbia Fire Department crews were dispatched to 4130 Lenoir Street #107 at 1:19 a.m. to a vehicle fire threatening a structure, according to a news release. When they arrived seven minutes later, the fire had engulfed the RV and extended into the mobile home.
The residents of the home, Sharon Sardis and her daughter, were not injured. The smoke detector didn't wake the two, but Sardis woke up to find the RV on fire in the driveway. Both managed to get out before the fire moved to the mobile home.
The cause of the fire was undetermined as of Monday morning. Assistant Fire Marshal James Pasley investigated the incident and estimated damage at $6,000.
Columbia Fire Department Battalion Chief James L. Weaver said an investigator will return to the mobile home Monday to gather more information. He said the RV is a loss, and the family can't stay in the trailer.
