Another fire keeps Yakima crews busy

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Yakima fire crews battled their fourth big fire in four days this morning.

This one broke out on La Salle Street between 8th and 9th Street just before noon Monday.

Crews say it started in a RV and quickly spread to a surrounding garage and outbuildings.

The motor home and several buildings were destroyed, but crews did keep the flames from spreading to nearby homes.
 
Neighbors say it was a frightening scene. They heard several loud explosions during the fire.

"Looked out my bedroom window, I seen the motor home on fire, big old flames out here, come out here. Didn't know what was going on, just heard some big explosions," said Randy Scholl who lives nearby.

Luckily, no one was in the RV when the fire broke out and no injuries have been reported.

Crews are not sure what started the blaze.
