Fire Destroys Stored ’77 VW Camper



A fire destroyed a vintage 1977 Volkwagen Westfalia Camper in Sturgeon Bay last weekend at 6116 Alabama Street.  Bob Parins, owner of the vehicle, describes how the fire started in his backyard on Saturday around 6:00pm.

After attempting to put the fire out, Parins called 9-1-1 when the flames engulfed the vehicle.  The fully restored  VW was a complete loss and a Toro riding mower was also damaged in a storage shelter.  The Sturgeon Bay Fire Department was able to contain the fire from spreading.
