The first engine company on the scene of this fire in a recreational vehicle found fire and smoke showing from the passenger side wall. Firefighters quickly knocked down the exterior flames before moving inside the smoky vehicle to find and extinsuish the rest of the fire.

A positive pressure fan was set up to clear the RV of smoke as firefighters used a thermal imaging camera inside. The special camera, which is called a TIC for short, is capable of seeing heat and measuring temperatures. Firefighter Dustin Worlow (left) and Volunteer Engineer Andy Wood are show above setting up the fan.

Captain Eaton and Firefighter Worlow monitor the situation as smoke is cleared from the RV using a fan. The positive pressure created by the fan blowing clean air in forces smoke and other toxic air out. Because the fan is supplying fresh air to the area previously on fire, firefighters have to ensure that there are no flare-ups or hidden pockets of fire.
