Northwest firefighters extinguished an RV fire Thursday morning, before it spread to nearby homes, officials said.

Shortly after 6 a.m., Northwest Fire District responded to a 911 call reporting an RV on fire that was parked next to the family's home in the 7100 block of West Jupiter Street, said Capt. Brian Keeley, a district spokesman.

By the time firefighters arrived, they found the RV "engulfed in flames" and immediately began fighting the blaze to prevent its spread to the family's home, Keeley said.

Two adults and three dogs were inside the home at the time of the fire, but were unharmed. The cause of the fire is under investigation, Keeley said.
