Fire in Dilworth temporarily closes portion of Highway 10
Clay County Sheriff Bill Bergquist said the fire at 210 Center Ave. W. is now under control but Highway 10 is closed for about a block near Center Avenue.
Commuters will have to find alternative routes through the city.
The fire started around 4 p.m. in a recreational vehicle parked next to a home.
Officials said the camper was for sale and the fire started after a potential buyer started the camper and it backfired.
Fire and rescue crews used a payloader to move the RV away from the house.
“The house received a little damage,” Bergquist said.
