Default Fire at Caravan site

This was reported in our local online news paper today. We weren't there at the time but I understand that the caravan was completely destroyed. Not near ours fortunately, hope the owner was insured.

The article says it was accidental. It would be good to know what actually happened. It could serve as a warning to others to be very careful.

We are planning a visit to our caravan this weekend so will probably find out more then. It will be interesting to find out if the owner was in the van at the time or if it was unoccupied.

Here's the update. Nobody was hurt, but the fire was a bit of a mystery from what I have been told. The van was an older one and the owner was due to leave it, 2 days later, then the fire occurred, that's all I know. Luckily it didn't spread to nearby vans.
