WATCH: Fire destroys camper, ute, tent at sprints

IT WAS a rough night for campers at the Leyburn Sprints last night when fire broke out in a camper trailer.

A Queensland Fire and Emergency Spokesman said there was a flood of calls about 8.30pm as flames from the camper trailer spread to nearby campsites.

Along with the camper trailer, a ute and three tents also caught fire and were completely destroyed.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services crews arrived to battle the blaze, eventually leaving the scene about 11pm.
