Traveling with fridge on
Yesterday I posted a noted about an incident that occurred at Crater Lake National Park about a? RV catching on fire while filling with gasoline. In response to those that wrote back here are my answers.:
1. The RV wat a motorhome, otherwise grandma would not have been in the back.
2. Many large national parks in remote areas have gasoline stations, i.e., Yellowstone, Glacier, Grand Canyon. You need to get out more.
3. Gas stations are run by park concessioners not park rangers.
4. Park rangers are responsible for respondiing to all emergencies in the park they work in, including fires. The entire staff of rangers responded to the fire at the gas station to put the fire out. Crater Lake had a trained, certfied, wildland and structural fire team and a full size fire engine.
5. I worked for the National Park Service for my entire career. Why would I make this stuff up?
6. The propane had been left on in the RV and when they fueled up, it ignited propane that was on in the RV. It was in the 1980's during the summer, so I will assume it was the fridge. Too warm for the heater. Don't know about the stove.
That's my story and I'm sticking with it. Happy trails!
