The Brownsville Fire Department responded to the Winter Haven Resort Tuesday afternoon where a fire broke out inside a storage area at the resort.

Resort Manager Juan Estrada said the fire sparked when the owner of a recreational vehicle or RV was working on his vehicle and turned on the generator to hear a popping sound before the flames overtook the RV.

Winter Haven Resort is located at 3501 Old Port Isabel Road.

Resort president Bob Moore, said there are several RV’s in storage on the lot where residents of the resort store their vehicles.

Brownsville firefighters were called to the scene to extinguish the flames. The owner reportedly fainted but was quickly attended to by emergency medical staff.
