CLEVELAND, Ga. – The White County Fire Department, with automatic aid from the City of Cleveland Fire Department, responded to a camper fire behind Mossy Creek Grocery south of Cleveland at approximately 2 p.m. today (Nov. 14).
Public Safety Director David Murphy said when fire units arrived, they discovered a 28-foot camper with smoke showing.
“The occupants were not home at the time and 911 was alerted by neighbors who originally attempted to put the fire out with a fire extinguisher,” Murphy said in an email. “An investigation was conducted and found that the roof air conditioner malfunctioned which caused the living area to ignite.”
The camper received smoke damage and is considered a total loss. Red Cross was called to the scene to assist the owners. No injuries were reported.
