A Thursday (Jan. 18) RV fire is being investigated by the Fire Marshall’s office.
The fire occurred in the 800 block of S. 7th St.
City of Slaton Code Enforcement Officer Rebecca Britton said there were occupants using an RV for a residence in an area not zoned for RVs.
Under City Code §3.12.002, Use of manufactured homes or recreational vehicles for dwellings, the rules read:
“Manufactured homes and recreational vehicles may be used for dwelling purposes only in the following instances: (1) When located in a manufactured home park or recreational vehicle park licensed by the City as hereinafter provided; (2) When located at a retail manufactured home or recreational vehicle sales or service business in a B-2 zoning district; this shall be limited to one such residence per business.”
Britton said the RV had been stickered multiple times for Unlawful to Occupy due to the zoning as violation as well as State Law violations for utilities.
