    Cigarette causes motor home blaze

    6:20pm Wednesday 27th August 2008
    A DISCARDED cigarette was believed to be the cause of a fire in a motor home at a holiday park in Brean at the weekend.
    Fire crews from Burnham were called to Warren Farm Holiday Park at around 10pm on Saturday to reports of a blaze.
    Crews confirmed on arrival that the fire in the luxury motor home had already been put out - reportedly by holidaymakers at the park.
    A fire spokesman said: “Crews carried out a thorough investigation and used a thermal image camera to check for any further signs of fire.
    “The cause is believed to be due to a carelessly put out cigarette.”

    :Blush:We have all the bad habits. We smoke and drink in the rv but are always very careful about putting the cigs out - for me the worst bit is washing the nicotine off the ceiling. Enjoying while we can - Mr Brown and his fun police will probably outlaw it very soon.

    According to all the adverts you see for motorhomes, nobody does. :Laughing:

    They all seem to say 'no pets, no smokers'. :Doh:

    How come so many motorhomers have dogs then, or don't they call dogs pets. :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    i smoke in ours and shirl may occasionally partake.

    smoking roll-ups, its more a challenge keeping them lit than ensuring they are out......:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Ann and myself, smoke in the MH. PapaJ is right. No chance of the MH catching fire, as we need a dozen lighters to get through one roll up. Then again, we don't touch the devil's brew. One hobby (vice) is expensive enough, although we do not pay Gordon Brown's prices for smokes. Gibralatar is the cheapest so far. £1.82 for 50g of baccy.

    We don't run out of baccy, we run out of lighters! :Laughing: I roll the cigs and have plenty help smoking them. Needless to say, our baccy comes from abroad, the one thing that would make me give up is English prices!

    Its a major sales pitch which appeals to the potty brigade and the rather naive.

    A few years ago i put my caravan up for sale. I spent a couple of days clearing bits 'n bobs out and generally giving it a thorough clean inside and out. Good job i did it then as a few days later i went down with a wretched virus. I was so ill i never even had a ciggie for almost a week, during which time the phone was ringing like crazy with potential buyers.

    Because i was still feeling so rotten, i wasn't smoking at the time the eventual purchaser turned up to view. He told me, "we are so glad we are buying from a non-smoker....all the other caravans we have been to see reek of fags"!!

    It cost me 99pence for some furniture polish, and i left the windows open. :Rofl1:

    We've both never smoked, and not fair on the kids so we ask visitors not to smoke in the Bus or House.

    They don't mind at all.:thumb:

    Plus, all that money not going up in Smoke can be spent on other things.:BigGrin:
