A 1977 Dodge motor home registered to Rickey Johnson of P. O. Box 818, Branford was destroyed by fire last Friday afternoon. The location of the fire was 292nd Street and 43rd Drive.
When fire units arrived the vehicle was fully engulfed according to a report filed with the Suwannee County Sheriff's Office.
According to Mrs. Johnson, she and her husband were in the motor home with the power plant running and were watching television when they heard a noise and the power went off. She stated, "we looked in the rear view mirror and saw flames in the rear of the motor home and got out as quickly as possible."
The couple attempted to extinguish the blaze with a fire extinguisher but were not successful, and called for assistance.
Fire units responding were Ranchettes and Three Rivers.
Deputy Bobby Akey was the investigating officer.
The State Fire Marshal's office was notified which is the normal procedure.
