DIXON (CBS SF) – Two men were killed and two others were seriously burned after a recreational vehicle caught on fire in Dixon early Tuesday morning, according to the Dixon Fire Department.

According to Lewis, the two found dead hadn't been removed from the RV as of 5:45 a.m. The two injury victims - who were outside the RV - suffered second- to third-degree burns and were transported to a hospital.

Lewis said the burns the victims suffered indicate the blaze likely started near the front of the RV, but the official cause was under investigation. No other RVs or trailers were affected by the blaze.
