caravan park fire

A caravan has been destroyed by a fire in the northern NSW town of Murwillumbah.

Emergency services were called to the Greenhills Caravan Park, on Tweed Valley Way, on Tuesday evening to find a caravan was completely engulfed in flames.

Police attended the scene, but Tweed/Byron LAC Inspector Bobbie Cullen told the Northern Star newspaper that the incident was not being treated as suspicious.

Insp Cullen said the caravan was believed to have been unoccupied for some time.

While the cause of the fire had not been determined, she said the incident was not being treated as suspicious and no one was injured.

The Greenhills Caravan Park is located close to the Queensland Border in a region dominated by the magnificent Mount Warning, an extinct volcano.

There have been an alarming number of caravan fires this year, including  at least three separate incidents last month alone. Six caravans were destroyed as flames swept through a van in Kilcoy, Queensland; while a caravan was also gutted by fire at a park in Bauple, also in Queensland; and in Katherine in the Northern Territory, a grey nomad couple’s caravan caught fire and was destroyed after they parked outside the town’s Visitor Information Centre.

Too many van fires occurring lately – Is it the result of unskilled persons in either manufacturing plants or novice electrically unskilled adding to and modifying their systems with the “well it’s on 12 volt attitude, so nothing can go wrong? People need to ensure their electrical systems a working correctly and have their wiring checked at least bi-annually.
