WILLISTON, Vt. (WCAX) - A camper fire briefly trapped two firefighters Monday afternoon in Williston.

Williston Fire Department officials say it happened on Fay Lane. They say the camper had been modified into a permanent home and they were told someone may have been inside, so they began fighting the flames while looking for victims.

Several tankers showed up because there weren’t any fire hydrants in the area. Two firefighters fell through the floor and were trapped before rescuing themselves and being treated on-scene. Everyone was eventually accounted for.

The was no immediate word on the cause of the fire.
