A Westlake resident lost his home and all his possessions in a brief but intense fire Thursday afternoon near Siltcoos Lake.

Siuslaw Valley Fire and Rescue received the call around 2 p.m., Dec. 19, but by the time they arrived, the fifth-wheeler recreational vehicle was engulfed.

The RV, a 1989 Aspen Light, is the full-time residence of Bill Mumpower. Mumpower, 60, was not at home at the time of the fire. A witness said that he was out on the dunes when he saw smoke and realized it was close to his home. When he got home, the RV, located in an RV park, was destroyed.
