Woman killed in Glendale RV fire identified

GLENDALE, Ariz. (KSAZ/AP) -- Glendale Fire officials have identified the woman who was killed in an RV fire Monday night.

According to officials, the fire started at approximately 6:00 p.m., along the 6200 block of Karen Lee Lane. 53-year-old Lori Campbell was living in an RV in front of her home when a fire started in the RV, and then spread to the home.

"Small, tight quarters, so you can imagine the heat and where the fire maybe starts could block your exit very easily," said Captain Kevin Thompson with the Glendale Fire Department. "And in a small, tight quarters, if there is a lot of smoke, you're virtually blind, and it would be really, really easy to become quickly disoriented and difficult to exit from."

Aside from Campbell, fire officials say four dogs died. Officials also say Campbell's partner was out of town at the time of the fire.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but fire officials said it didn't appear to be suspicious.
