Motorhome erupts in flames. Ammunition starts popping!

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.
