RV, lumber also destroyed after blaze on private property near Old Remo

There was significant property damage but no injuries after a fire broke out May 13 on private property near Old Remo.

The fire burned a red, classic collector’s truck, melted an RV, and damaged the siding of a shop, said Christopher England, deputy fire chief with the Thornhill Volunteer Fire Department. The blaze also burned some milled lumber and some trees and brush at the edge of the property.

The main house on the property escaped damage.

Nine firefighters responded to the call that came in around 2:40 p.m., England said. It took them about 45 minutes to get the fire under control.

England said the cause of the fire is unknown and the matter is still under investigation.
