Airstream on Fire at Burning Man?!

Caught this highlight video on the Burning Man live stream site.

Burning Man RV Fire, burningman-webcast Captured on Ustream:burningman-webcast Other Entertainment

Can't really tell if this is a vintage A/S or some other trailer. Does someone know?

More importantly though, I hope no-one is hurt and the occupants have a place to bunk for the rest of the burn.

It looks to me like what was burning was on the far side of the trailer. I can't imagine flames that big coming from the trailer wouldn't have done visible damage on the near side.

Airstream on Fire at Burning Man

I don't think that is an Airstream. It looks like an Argosy. It does seem a little strange that the smoke and flames are coming from one side only.

Hard to tell whether it's the Airstream or not. I hope not, though.
