Officials from the Prince George’s County Office of the Fire Marshal are investigating a fire involving a camping trailer with a civilian fatality. At around 5:15 am, Saturday, December 5, firefighters were alerted to a fire in the 11300 block of Tippett Road in Clinton. Fire/EMS units arrived to find a 20-foot camping trailer fully involved with fire. Once the fire was extinguished an adult male was found inside the trailer and declared deceased.
