The threat of having your RV catch fire is an alarming and frightening prospect, and often the cause of the fire is unknown. Could it be a manufacturing problem? Or did the RV owner’s actions cause the fire to erupt? Here are three mysteriously caused fires that happened over the weekend.
BARTOW COUNTY, GA (reported by CBS46) – A woman was killed in an RV fire Sunday afternoon in Bartow County.
Someone called 911 to report the fire just before 1:30 p.m. on Bailey Hill Road. When crews arrived at the scene, they found a 57-year-old woman who died in the blaze.
A spokesperson with the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office says the RV was “undergoing engine repairs”, which led (how!) to the fire.
PORTLAND, Ore. (reported by KOIN) – A man was critically burned Saturday evening after his RV caught fire in a Vancouver (Washington) Walmart parking lot.
The man, who wasn’t identified, was transported to Legacy Emanuel Saturday night and was in critical condition.
The cause of the fire is unknown.
EXETER, NH (reported by WMUR-TV) – An RV caught fire just after 9 a.m. on Route 101 in Exeter Sunday while headed westbound near Exit 11.
The man driving the RV found out the vehicle was on fire when family members following him in another vehicle called to tell him about the flames, according to the Exeter Fire Department.
No one was hurt.
