An RV fire is one (very bad) thing, but when the fire ignites ammunition that’s far worse. That’s what happened August 26 on Washington state’s Blewett Pass highway. As a result, traffic was halted for three hours.
The 40-foot motorhome was being driven by 64-year-old Kim Michael Goodwin of Chelan, Washington, who was towing a trailer with a quad when it broke down about 10:20 a.m.
The exploding ammo led to the immediate closure of the highway, which left motorists stranded for three hours until one lane was reopened. Three hours later two-way traffic resumed.
No one was hurt but the RV was toast.
