On Monday morning, a fire destroyed an RV motor home and caused minor damage to a garage in proximity to the blaze in the 2600 block of Bird View Road near Gamber.
The Gamber & Community fire company responded to the fire, along with units from other companies, including Reese, Westminster, Sykesville and Winfield.
At 11:02 a.m., the first units to arrive on the scene found an RV motor home enveloped by fire, with a 24-by-24-foot garage and a tractor close by. Units concentrated on extinguishing the fire and protecting the garage. The fire was under control by 11:17 a.m.
The motor home was reduced to its skeleton and was a total loss; however, besides minor smoke and heat damage, the garage and tractor were intact.
The cause of the fire was still under investigation by the Maryland State Fire Marshal as of Monday afternoon.
