Pete’s RV Center at 12:39 AM on 7-5-2018

At approximately 12:39 AM on Thursday, July 5th, 2018, the SWFD was dispatched to an unknown fire at Pete’s RV Center (formerly Vans RV), at 417 John Fitch Blvd (Route 5). A police officer arrived on scene first and gave an update of a well-involved structure (large shed) fire, with extension to two campers and four vehicles.

Responding units were Car 23, Car 10, Engine 4, Engine 6, Engine 8, Rescue 5, and a mutual aid ladder from East Hartford.  The three vehicles involved were parked at a neighboring business, Pete’s Carstar, close to the property line.  Several other camper trailers were parked in close proximity to fire location, but crews were able to prevent the flames from extending further, and limited the damage.

There were no injuries, and the cause of the fire is under investigation by the South Windsor Fire Marshal’s Office. Please direct any questions regarding cause and origin to them.

-Lt. Pelletier
