September 28, 2011

HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. — A fire Wednesday morning totally destroyed a travel trailer and two sheds in River Bend RV Park along the Potomac River in Berkeley County, Hedgesville Volunteer Fire Department Chief Mike Nichols said.

An addition to the trailer also was destroyed and two nearby trailers and an outbuilding in the RV park at 3247 Vineyard Road also received heat and fire damage, Nichols said.

No one was injured. The owners, whom Nichols said were from Frederick, Md., were not there when the fire started.

Firefighters were dispatched about 6:40 a.m. to the seasonal campground, which is about four miles from Williamsport Pike off Grade Road, according to Nichols.

Nichols estimated the fire caused about $70,000 in damage.

The West Virginia State Fire Marshall’s Office was contacted to investigate the fire, Nichols said.
