Someone had a bad day. :(

From Oregon State Police news release:

The westbound lanes of Interstate 84 east of Mosier was briefly closed Wednesday morning while firefighters extinguished a motorhome fire that spread to a grassy area adjacent to the freeway.

According to Sergeant Les Kipper, on August 13, 2014 at approximately 11:10 a.m., an Oregon State Police (OSP) Fish & Wildlife from The Dalles Area Command office came upon a motorhome on fire along the westbound shoulder of Interstate 84 near milepost 72. The motorhome's sole occupant, a 57-year old Hermiston man, had gotten out of the motorhome safely. The fire spread to a grassy area next to the freeway lanes.

Fire personnel from Mosier Fire & Emergency Services and Oregon Department of Forestry responded and quickly extinguished the fire. The motorhome was a total loss.

OSP and ODOT provided traffic control. Both WB lanes of I-84 were closed for about 30 minutes. One lane remained closed for about 2 hours while fire personnel mopped up the area.

Cause of the motorhome fire is unknown.

Bummer! Have a friend with an MH and the toad caught fire and scorched the rear of the MH. The toad was totaled but the MH was repaired in about 6 weeks.

It's pretty sad that some people can't recognize sarcasm unless it's pointed out to them.


Do you like the taste of shoe leather?
