Firefighters in Campbell River were called to a house fire Tuesday afternoon that spread to a neighbouring home and threatened two others.
Crews responded to the 4500-block of Barclay Road, after reports around 1:40 p.m. of explosions and a fire that is believed to have started in a motorhome and spread to a house on the property.
The home firefighters responded to was fully engulfed in flames when they arrived, and crews saw flames coming from a neighbouring house.
