As the Springs Fire burned its away around Camarillo, it torched an RV parking and storage area.

Firefighters tell KTLA 5 News that some 16 vehicles were destroyed.

“Everything in this corner was mine for the last 30 years,” Wendell Harden said pointing out what uses to be a boat, truck and two campers.

The flames reduced Harden’s mobile vacationing fun to ashes.

KTLA’s Sky 5 helicopter showed live on television as fire engulfed them.

“What’s left of it? Nothing. Absolutely nothing,” Harden said.

Eve Thomas fought back tears with her husband. From her office, she saw the RV their young kids vacation in destroyed by an inferno.

“Wow! It’s a little shocking,” Thomas said surveying the damage. “It’s tough to look at.”

Thomas has to explain to her children what this fire has taken from them, and more importantly, stress what they still have.

“We have grandma. We have each other, and luckily we weren’t here and weren’t hurt,” Thomas said.

Of the people KTLA talked to at the RV parking lot, including Harden and Thomas, everyone said they had insurance.

Now they just hope they’re covered.
