BRISTOL, Ind.—Renegade RV is recovering following a stubborn fire that took thousands of gallons of water and several hours for multiple fire crews to contain on Saturday.
Multiple fire departments were called out to help fight the flames. Including Bristol, five departments responded, according to a story by WSBT 22 News.
The factory was massive, but the fire was contained to just one RV inside. No one was inside the factory at the time of the fire.
Crews used more than 9,000 gallons of water to put the fire out. The one RV is a total loss, but the rest of the factory received almost no damage. Investigators are still attempting to determine the cause of the fire.
