The Rock County Sheriff’s Office is helping investigate a fire in which 12 campground trailers burned Tuesday night. Milton Fire Department Battalion Chief Pete Mory said he knew of no one occupying the trailers when the fire broke out at Lakeland RV Campground. No injuries were reported. Only two of the trailers appeared salvageable, Mory said. Photos taken by retired Janesville firefighter Dave Sheen show only charred wreckage and twisted metal where some trailers once stood, others with melted siding. Sheen said he saw at least two boats and some golf carts that burned. Sheen said the scene, with multiple fires, was a rare fire call. “It was big, and there was a lot going on,” he said. Firefighters mounted a fire watch at the site Tuesday night, and investigators began their work at the site Wednesday morning, Mory said.
