Blaze rips through caravan

FIREFIGHTERS managed to contain a dramatic caravan fire and stop it spreading through Riverside Camp Site on Saturday evening.
No one was hurt in the incident but the caravan was described as ‘fully engulfed’ by the time crews arrived at the camp site on the river side of the Ocean Grove to Barwon Heads ‘Spit’ road.
Crews received the call just after 8pm on Saturday evening and were greeted by palls of black smoke and flames billowing from the 15ft caravan and awning.
Although the fire had spread to overhanging tea-trees, crews acted quickly to ensure the damage was confined to the relatively small footprint of the caravan.
Crews remained on the scene ensuring there were no hidden gas canisters inside the remains of the caravan.
The owner was away from the van at the time of the fire but returned shortly after crews had extinguished flames.
General Manager Bob Jordan said the fire should be a reminder to campers to ensure that gas is disconnected when they are not on site.
