An alert passer-by likely saved a home on Ocean Beach Highway on Thursday evening by noticing a fire in an adjacent motorhome.

Fire crews were called to 4217 Ocean Beach Highway at 7:42 p.m. after a passer-by saw the fire and called 911 and then alerted the residents. Initially it looked like the house was on fire, but when fire crews arrived they found it was a large motorhome parked next to the house, said Assistant Chief Alan Headley of Cowlitz 2 Fire & Rescue.

Both Longview Fire and Cowlitz 2 responded to the blaze and Headley credited Longview’s engine 82 crew with helping to stop the fire before it spread to the house.

“Both 82 and our engine 22 were pretty close by and got a good stop on it,” Headley said. “The motorhome was close enough that the fire would have spread. It was definitely endangering the house.”

The 35- to 40-foot motorhome was destroyed in the fire, Headley said, but no one was injured. Crews were still mopping up the scene at 9:30 p.m. and a cause wasn’t yet available, Headley said.
