RV owner parked near Wisconsin fire station knocks on building door to report flames at mobile home

MADISON, Wis. (WFRV) – The owner of an RV parked down the road from a fire station in Wisconsin ran down the street and knocked on the station’s door to report a fire at his mobile home.

A release from the Madison Fire Department states that firefighters at Station 14 got a knock on their door around 10 p.m. on Thursday from a man who lived in a recreational vehicle parked down the street.

The man told firefighters that while he was watching TV the lights flickered a couple of times and then dimmed. He then noticed a glow outside the passenger side door, quickly realizing it was a fire. After safely getting out of the RV, he ran down the street to Fire Station 14.
