LIVE OAK — A storage building with a motor home and a small aircraft caught fire Thursday night around 10 p.m.

According to James Sommers, the public safety director for Suwannee County Fire Rescue, the property owner was able to remove two of his boats from the building before it was fully engulfed. But the aircraft and mobile home were lost to the fire.

Sommers said that when the owner's son investigated a light coming from their barn, he discovered their mobile home on fire.

After telling his father, they opened the barn door, filling the room with Oxygen, causing the fire to grow and completely engulf the camper, Sommers said.

Investigators believe the fire was caused by an electrical malfunction with the camper's shoreline. 

Crews worked into the morning to contain the fire.
