Authorities said a man who was sleeping inside the RV suffered minor burns to his arm. He was treated at the scene and released.

A fire inspector at the scene told Kelly that the fire is not suspicious and was likely the result of a mechanical issue. However, he said there was not enough evidence to officially determine the cause of the fire.
