Fire Dist. 9 volunteer and Assistant Coroner Steven Clanton uses a piercing lance to inject water into this travel trailer used as a residence. Fire Chief Doug Rachal said the lance allows firefighters to attack the fire from outside the structure and keeps them from having to enter it when conditions are unstable. Camper resident Donna Sulieman said she believes the fire began near the air conditioning unit above. “It’s right where I sleep,” she said. She and owner George A. Bush were not home at the time of the fire. There were no injuries
