RV Park and Campground Briefs
From Foster's Daily Democrat:
An unidentified male was med-flighted to Maine Medical Center Wednesday (Aug. 3) after receiving serious burns in a fire at a Rochester campground.
According to Fire Marshall Dominick Bellio, the Fire Department and Frisbie EMS were dispatched to Amazon Camp Area at 105 Whitehouse Road at approximately 9:12 a.m. after receiving a report of an oxygen-enriched fire with potentially serious burns to a male subject.
The fire was already extinguished when firefighters arrived, Bellio said, although how the fire was extinguished is still under investigation.
Bellio said crews arrived on scene and found the male subject conscious and alert, but suffering from serious burns.
The subject was transported to Frisbie Memorial Hospital where he was stabilized, and was then med-flighted to Maine Medical Center to be evaluated, Bellio said.
There was no property damage in the fire, Bellio said.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
From The Union, Grass Valley:
A Nevada City, Calif., man remains in jail after offering a woman the same DVD player he allegedly stole from her a month earlier.
The woman, who was not identified, had reported that her tent at the South Yuba River Campground off North Bloomfield-Graniteville Road was burglarized on July 3, said Nevada County Sheriff Keith Royal.
“She said she had gone into Nevada City for supplies and when she returned, she discovered someone had entered her tent and taken a handgun, a laptop, a camera, a portable DVD player and a hard drive,” Royal said.
The victim checked with other campers in the area, but no one had seen or heard anything, Royal said.
She returned to the campground on Monday (Aug. 1) and was approached by a man identified as Jarrad Daniel Rice, 32, who told her which campsites were open. The woman recognized him and recalled that he had been at the site at the time of the burglary — and that she had talked to him before she left to buy groceries, Royal said.
Rice allegedly told the victim that he had a television and some marijuana stolen from him the same day she was burglarized, then allegedly gave her a DVD player “which she recognized as hers,” Royal said.
Rice was arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property and possession of concentrated cannabis. He was being held in county jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.
