LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Fire ripped through the North Trail RV Center Wednesday morning.

The State Fire Marshal’s Office tells WINK News the fire caused nearly $600,000 in damage.

“You can hear the propane tanks exploding, you can hear all of the tires letting all of the air out, and big fire balls coming out,” said Shaun O’Hara who captured the fire with his phone.

This isn’t the first time an RV has gone up in flames at the dealership. Back in March, more than $1 million in damage was assessed after a battery started a blaze that wiped out a total of seven RVs. The State Fire Marshal’s Office ruled that fire accidental.

Investigators say the fire started in the driver’s seat of one of the RVs and then spread to the other.
