A fire this week destroyed Curtis Trailer Center, a towable RV dealership in Schoolcraft, Mich., south of Kalamazoo, according to the Detroit Free Press.
The 46-year-old dealership carried Coachmen-brand towables, Fleetwood folding fampers and Fleetwood’s Wilderness series, according to Curtis Trailer’s website.
The Monday-night fire was caused by the explosion of several propane tanks inside the dealership’s showroom, which appeared to be a total loss, according to a Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department deputy contacted by the Associated Press (AP). The showroom was full of campers and trailers.
The fire was being investigated Tuesday (March 9), theAP reported.
No injuries were reported.
A nearby natural gas line also fed the showroom fire, the Kalamazoo Gazette stated.
Seeing the showroom could not be saved, firefighters concentrated on saving the RVs that were parked outside, according to the Gazette.
