Two residents displaced in fire at Windsor Wine Country RV Park

A woman and an elderly man escaped flames Saturday that destroyed their residences Saturday at the Windsor Wine Country RV Park, fire officials said.

The fire broke out in the kitchen of a parked 30-foot motorhome at the complex on Conde Lane just before noon, Central Fire Acting Battalion Chief Ron Busch said. The flames quickly engulfed the motorhome where the woman and her cat resided and then spread to an adjacent 35-foot travel trailer where the elderly man lived, Busch said.

Windsor and Rincon Valley firefighters extinguished the flames within 20 minutes, he said. The pair of residents and cat were uninjured, but both their homes sustained major damage and were considered a “total loss,” Busch said. Damage was reported at $100,000.

“Both of them have been put in touch with the Red Cross,” he said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. However, fire officials believe it started after a candle was left unattended.
