RV Fire Disrupts Monday Business at Maverik

A fire that started in an older Recreational Vehicle that had stopped to refuel at the Maverik service center at 655 Cabela Drive in Sidney around 10 a.m. disrupted business at the Maverik station for a short while, while local fire and law enforcement contained the blaze and kept the area clear for safety.

Cheyenne County Sheriff Adam Frerichs was on the scene, and although it was not immediately known where the RV that caught fire was from, Frerichs did confirm that the vehicle did contain ammunition, and it was exploding inside the vehicle as a result of the fire. Standing about 50-75 feet away, the heat of the fire could be felt while snapping explosions continuously emanated from the flames. The Sidney Fire Department was on the scene and started to extinguish the fire with water shot from a distance from their engine.

More details will be available soon, and we will have a full report in the June 29th edition of the Sun-Telegraph.
