RV Catches Fire In The Poconos

I caught a link to this video showing and RV on fire as well as his toad.

Thankfully the owner and his girlfriend were able to get out with help.

When you look at this it's crazy how it went rolling down the center of town on fire.

That is one scary video for sure. Looks as though, it went up like a match stick. Wonder if cause was ever determined?

Saw a short story about this on the evening news tonight. They didn't say what started the fire. They both got out and she went back in to get their cat. A Navy man rescued her. They said the RV was all they owned and now it's gone :( sad. They are lucky to be alive. Fire in the RV is my worst nightmare.

That is crazy! And almost a year ago I bought a coach from the OO just miles from there which had been sitting for a period of time.
I drove it all the way back home to AZ but it could have any number of issues I was unaware of while on the 2700 mile journey.

One of the reporters said the couple lived full time in the RV.
Glad they are safe. Now, they just have to find out how good their insurance is. Not only for their motor home and car but for all the other damage caused by the fire.
It will be interesting to see what caused the fire. The coach did look to be a diesel pusher, so my guess would be a fuel line came loose and sprayed the hot engine with fuel.
