Family loses camper, pet bird in fire

GENOA COUNTY, Mich. — A Genoa Township family’s fifth wheel was destroyed Thursday in a fire that killed their pet bird, the Livingston Daily News reported.

Nobody was injured in the fire, but the fire destroyed the 35-foot RV, which the family was living in while their home was being remodeled. The blaze also caused minor damage to the exterior of the home, the paper explained.

“It turned out be a large camper fire,” Deputy Chief Mike Evans of the Brighton Area Fire Department told the paper, adding that the fifth-wheel camper was parked between the home and the garage. No cause has been determined.
