POWHATAN, VA (WWBT) -

Powhatan firefighters saved a woman’s home from burning after a camper caught fire nearby.

Flames spread from the camper to the garage, and the siding on the home was starting to melt, but firefighters quickly got the flames under control.

The call came just before 11 p.m. Wednesday on Old Tavern Road.

During the fire, two propane tanks exploded, and a neighbor said he could feel his house shaking.

No one was injured, and the cause is being investigated.
