Before dispatchers got ahold of the fire department, someone walked into their fire station and told them a motor home was on fire. Firefighters rushed to the home about a half-mile away as the dispatch center asked them to respond. The motor home was a complete loss. The fire was confined to that area. No one was injured. According to Chief Mike Harris with Franklin County Fire District #3, the fire was an accident. He said the homeowners were boiling chicken in a propane heated pot.
