A night that started out with a Halloween party took a truly frightening turn Saturday (Oct. 29) after fire engulfed a trailer at a popular campground in Cassidy, south of Nanaimo, British Columbia, television station CHEK reported.

But while one RV was destroyed, campers, residents and visiting revelers at Mountainaire Campground and RV Park sprang into action to help prevent further damage.

“We were having a Halloween haunted house, and just after the haunted house, the campers had just returned they were all sitting around fires when someone just came running up and said there’s a big fire in the campground,” said Val Brochner, Mountainaire Campground and RV Park owner/manager.

Several people at the park ran to check that no one was inside the burning trailer, then satisfied no one was, turned their garden hoses or fire extinguishers on it and a neighboring trailer threatened by the intense heat.

Owner Kirstie Gourlay made it out, but her trailer suffered extensive damage.
