Just after daybreak, there was this boom, not really loud enough to jolt us out of bed but enough to get our attention. Lying there wondering what it could have been, then the sounds of sirens, many sirens rushing our way, passing us by and headed further into the Unreserved area. Being in the desert we find ourselves more observant than usual about fires because of all the dry brush around us so we immediately jumped out of bed and ran outside. The flames were ravaging around some campers and the smoke was bellowing high into the air. The fire department did an excellent job and had it out in no time at all. The only information we received was it was a 5th Wheel that was dropped off, nobody was in it and that it was caused by the refrigerator.
