North County Fire makes quick work of RV fire

North County Fire Protection District made quick work of an RV fire at 666 Ranger Road.

The blaze was first reported at 4:16 p.m. Captain John Choi with North County Fire said.

When firefighters arrived they found the RV fully engulfed, he said, adding that there was a "little bit of extension into the vegetation."

"The column of smoke could be seen in the east area of Fallbrook," Choi said. "It was a pretty defined column."

The fire was underneath a powerline so SDG&E had to be notified and has arrived on scene to do a survey of its equipment.

North County Fire and Cal Fire responded to the fire which was fully contained at 4:34 p.m., Choi said.

Crews remain on the scene for mop up operations, Choi said.

The fire occurred on the first official "Red Tier" day of the National Weather Service's four-tier heat index.
