(KNSI) - A fire in Waite Park spread from an RV to a garage before fire crews were able to knock it down.

The Waite Park Fire Department responded to a house near the intersection of 2nd Street North and 7th Avenue North at around noon Tuesday on the report of a camper on fire.

When crews arrived the camper was fully engulfed and the fire was spreading to a garage.

Firefighters got to work on the fire, and St. Joseph Fire was called for mutual aid.

The camper is a total loss, as is a truck that was next to it.

The fire also spread to a boat on a neighboring property.

No word yet on the estimated damage to the garage.

The cause is under investigation, but firefighters say the fire started with the RV.
