Around 12:00pm firemen responded to a camper fire@ the Spur Station on Jefferson Highway. Firefighters arrived and found one camper fully involved. The gas pumps at the station were immediately shut off once the fire became apparent to those in the surrounding area. A couple from OK in town for Mardi Gras noticed the fire in their camper, tried to put it out with a fire extinguisher, and then called 911 when it was apparent that the situation was only getting worse.
