Rt. 16, Webster

Particulars: One man was injured shortly after 1 p.m. on Tuesday February 28th as a result of a camper trailer fire at the Webster Campground on Route 16. Details are sketchy at this time, but one individual was treated at the scene for burns by Webster EMS paramedics, then transported to a Worcester hospital for further assessment and treatment of his injuries. His condition was not immediately known.
Firefighters and Rescue personnel from Webster attacked the fully involved trailer upon their arrival. Because there were no hydrants in the area, and there was no substantial water supply nearby, the neighboring Douglas Fire Department had to be called in to the scene with a tanker to supplement the Webster FD’s “water on wheels”. The volume of fire produced by the trailer did spawn a few small brush fires in the immediate area, which were quickly handled by firefighters on the scene.
The fire is under investigation by the Webster Fire and Police Departments. They are being assisted by Troopers from the State Fire Marshals Office.
