Aug 28, 2013 / 7:47 pm
With files from Oliver Daily News.
The window of an older model camper trailer that had burst into flames had to be broken in order to assist a young boy who was trapped inside at Oliver Centennial Park Wednesday afternoon.
The first emergency responder on the scene was Fire Chief Dan Skaros who, when interviewed, was getting a check up from ambulance personnel.
The Fire Chief suffered some abrasions but was more concerned with the victim who he said had inhaled a lot of smoke.
The fire started at about 4:20 p.m. and an ambulance was seen rushing from the area approximately ten minutes later.
Names of those involved and condition of the child, whose age is estimated between 10 and 12, are not yet known.
