A motor home in Anchorage was burning Wednesday afternoon, with multiple units responding to the area.

The Anchorage Fire Department was working on extinguishment, at 2635 Bell Circle, as of 12:20 p.m. on Wednesday.

According to Jodie Hettrick, the deputy chief with AFD, the fire was initially called in just after noon. Three units responded to the fire, which was described as "actively burning."

No injuries have been reported so far. Hettrick said that this is a reminder to the community that, in structures such as motor homes, fires can burn very quickly.

"Because of that, the speed of fire acceleration, it's very important to have working smoke alarms and CO alarms," Hettrick said.
