RV fire damages Grand Haven business

Ottawa County

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) — An RV fire that sent heavy smoke billowing into the air damaged a contractor’s business in Grand Haven on Friday morning.

The fire started around 9 a.m. at Commercial Contractors, located at 16745 Comstock St. at 168th Avenue.

The fire started in the owner’s motor home, which was parked inside the attached garage. It’s not yet clear what sparked it.

Three fire departments responded. Authorities say crews tried repeatedly to tow the burning motor home out of the garage before finally managing it around noon.

The RV sustained extensive damage, as did the building’s east wall near the roof.

A Grand Haven public safety officer had to be hospitalized after collapsing at the scene. Police didn’t explain what caused the officer to collapse, but said that person was treated and was expected to be released later in the day.

No one else was hurt.
