FRAZIER PARK, CA (Monday, July 6, 2020 at 1:36 p.m.)—[updated] A pickup truck with camper that was being towed by Panorama Towing caught fire just after 1 p.m. while eastbound on Frazier Mountain Park Road, just east of Cuddy Canyon Road. Cuddy Valley resident Rob Eubank was there when the fire erupted, and made a video of Kern County Fire Department engines 56 and 357 extinguishing the blaze in about 10 minutes, including a small grass fire that started.
Eubank said there were some small explosions in the camper, but the gas tank did not exolode. There were some melted lights on the tow truck and roadside foliage sparks, but those were extinguished quickly and that appeared to be the limit of the damage, Eubank said. The tow truck, he reported, had been asked by the sheriff’s office to take the camper for impound.
