On Saturday, February 13, plumes of black smoke arose from where it seemed like the location of Mar Vista Middle School. As I traveled west on Coronado Avenue, I figured something big was on fire, so I approached from side streets.

One police car was on the scene. The officer directed traffic on the east side of Coronado. I was able to park a few blocks away and get within feet of a fully engulfed Winnebago.

After I'd taken a few photos, an officer ran up to me and said, "Get outta here — the propane tank might blow!" Members of San Diego Fire Department had shown up and were dousing the fire and showing no fear.

Its a shame, the person(s)who owned the RV also lived in it. Its always out in front of Albertsons and other places around IB like The Office Lounge. I wish my best to the owner(s).
