Early Morning Crockett Fire Guts Abandoned Motor Home; Firefighters Prevent Spread

CROCKETT (CBS SF) -- An early Tuesday morning fire in Crockett destroyed an abandoned motor home and spread to nearby vegetation before firefighters were able to contain the blaze, authorities said.

The Crockett Carquinez Fire Department said crews responded to reports of a fire at 20050 San Pablo Ave. at around 12:30 a.m.

Arriving firefighters discovered an abandoned motor home engulfed in flames and the fire spreading to nearby vegetation.

Firefighters aggressively attacked the flames, halting its progress. The area is currently under extreme drought conditions with tinder-dry brush as temperatures expected to soar into the upper 80s later Tuesday.

By 3 a.m., crews transformed their efforts into mopping up.

No injuries were reported. A cause remained under investigation.
