An unidentified person died in a recreational vehicle fire Saturday night in Medford.

“We did find a body in the fifth wheel,” said Medford Battalion Chief Sean Schmidt. “When we arrived on the scene flames were coming out of every opening in the fifth wheel.”

The call came in at 6:13 p.m. Saturday, and fire crews had the blaze extinguished within six minutes.

Investigators were trying to determine the cause of the fire and the identity of the victim.

More details will be released after the investigation is completed.

The recreational vehicle was completely destroyed and the fire was threatening trees on the property, located at 2191 Kings Highway, a short distance to South Stage Road.

“There were 30-foot flames from the fifth wheel,” Schmidt said.
