Also true but would seem less likely except in the event of a major failure, which may have happened.

About 10 years ago while camping at the Lighthouse Campground at Rockport On a motor home went up in flames while parked at the campground. The fire department arrived with in 10 min. but all they could save was the frame. With luck they were parked about 6 feet away from a 200lb propane tank. The firemen kept the large tank cool. It is amazing how fast a RV unit will burn. It does not matter if you are towing or parked if there is a gas leak and a source of ignition you will have a fire.
