    Fire call
    Medford fire investigators are looking into the cause of a fire that destroyed a fifth-wheel trailer at 5 a.m. Sunday on the 500 block of Charlotte Ann Road.
    Although the RV was not equipped with a working smoke detector, the person inside was alerted to the fire and quickly got out safely, officials said. Four fire engines and a battalion chief responded to the 911 call reporting the fire.
    Medford Fire-Rescue crews arrived about six minutes after the fire was reported and extinguished the blaze within four minutes, dispatch records show. No other buildings or vehicles were damaged.
    The trailer, a 1996 Sandpiper by Cobra Industries, sustained heavy damage and is a total loss, fire officials said. Investigators continue to look for the cause of the fire.
