CORPUS CHRISTI -- Several customers showed up at the Weber Creek Storage facility to check on their campers to find out if they were destroyed by yesterday's massive fire and one man, Chris Lozano, expressed his concerns.
"We were driving along the highway I noticed a huge huge cloud of smoke," Lozano said.mar
He and his family saw the flames from the freeway and at first didn't know what was on fire, then realized where it was coming from.-
"That it's at the Weber Creek Storage, so I immediately call my brother who is in Vegas, enjoying himself and unfortunately that came to a screeching halt because he was worried you know that's his livelihood, Lozano said.
He says his brother's 40 foot trailer is brand new and still parked inside the facility, seemingly untouched by the fierce fire.
Lozano says his brother is very lucky he didn't lose his trailer in this fire, but their hearts go out to those who lost property to the blaze.
"We got here this morning to check on our stuff and it looks like we are okay unfortunately it does appear that a lot of people had a lot of stuff damaged, which my thoughts and prayers go out to those people," Lozano said.
Fire officials still don't know the cause of the fire and can't let customers through the chained gates until the materials that burned have cool down.
"A lot of people pretty anxious to get in and they're doing their best and from what I understand for the fire marshal to give the okay and the clearance to allow people access to their properties and so they've asked us to check back this afternoon, which I probably will do," Lozano added.
For now, folks have to hang tight and hope their campers made it through this unexpected blaze.
