NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. — Fire crews are investigating the cause of a Tuesday morning blaze that destroyed a camper and scorched a nearby pickup truck.

Flames were put out within an hour of their arrival; a pickup that was sitting next to the camper showed clear burn marks. Charred and melted remains of bicycles and other household items could be seen strewn among the debris.

Officials say all four people using camper were accounted for, as well as a pet dog and rabbit. No foul play is suspected.
