The Clarksville, Ind., Fire Department is investigating what started as a mattress fire and later engulfed several vehicles at Campers Inn RV late Wednesday (April 12) afternoon.
The News and Tribune reported that Clarksville firefighters responded to Newman Avenue around 4:30 p.m. When crews arrived, there were up to several hundred mattresses on fire, Chief Brandon Skaggs said.
The mattresses were located under a carport next to a lot of RVs at Campers Inn RV, a 38-year-old dealership formerly known as Tom Stinnett Derby City RV that was recently acquired by Campers Inn. The dealership is located between Clarion Hotel and Derby Dinner Playhouse.
“This was a fast evolving scene and teamwork here with Tom Stinnett (Campers Inn), Clarksville police, Clarksville fire, Jeffersonville fire, [we were] able to get a really god knock on the fire and … to save a lot of the property,” Skaggs said.
