BISMARCK, North Dakota - For the second time in two weeks in Bismarck, fire crews have responded to Capitol RV.
This time, one camper went up in flames, doing minor damage to the one next to it as well.
This is after owner Bruce Bentz said that the fire two weeks ago caused several million dollars worth of damages to the main building, according to a story by West Dakota Fox News.
Firefighters arrived just before 8:45 a.m. and put the blaze out shortly after 9:00. Some remained on the scene for at least an hour after that.
No one was injured during the fire.
