An early morning fire Nov. 26 at Moab Business Park started in the refrigerator compartment of a motor home parked inside a unit and spread to the outside of the vehicle, according to Moab Valley Fire Department spokesperson Erik Edge.

The first report of the fire, which began inside a unit at the east end of the park, came in just after 6:30 a.m., Edge said. Four fire units and 13 firefighters responded to the scene and crews were able to extinguish the fire in just under an hour.

According to Edge, there was no structural damage to the metal building that the motor home was in, though there was considerable smoke damage to multiple units in the park.
