VIDEO: Residents in a North Portland neighborhood want action from city leaders after the explosion of a camper-trailer parked on a busy street corner in the early hours of Saturday. No one was hurt when the RV exploded around 2 a.m. Saturday near North Lombard and Catlin, Portland Fire & Rescue said. The camper was parked across the street from a convenience store and just feet from a home. Witnesses who spoke with KOIN 6 News painted a dramatic scene with burning debris landing on the home’s roof and one neighbor who grabbed a water hose to begin spraying the house. A propane tank is visible among all the char and debris. One man told KOIN 6 News he was helping the people who lived in the camper to hook up the propane tank when it erupted.
