An RV was destroyed by a fire on Vining Avenue in Huntsville early Tuesday morning.

No one was inside the RV when it caught on fire.

Marion Maroni, the RV’s owner said he believes the fire was set intentionally.

Maroni says he was devastated by the loss since he just finished remodeling the RV recently.

Maroni said he was woken up by a motion sensor he had on the RV. The motion sensor sends out a beep when it detects motion, he said that is what woke him up, not the fire. When he got outside the RV was completely engulfed in flames. He thinks it was firebombed through the back window of the RV.

Maroni says he lost about $1,000 worth of tools and equipment in the fire.

The RV was parked just five feet away from the house. The Huntsville Fire Department was able to put out the fire before it spread to the house.

Initially, fire investigators think it may have been an electrical fire, but Marioni has spoken with HFD and HPD investigators, and at this time there is no official word on how the fire started.
