MOHAVE COUNTY, Ariz. — Traffic on Interstate 15 through Arizona was at a standstill Thursday afternoon as firefighters attacked a motorhome that caught fire.
Around 1:30 p.m., the engine compartment of a motorhome on northbound I-15 in the area of milepost 22 caught fire. The driver pulled the motorhome off the road and evacuated with his wife before it spread too far, Beaver Dam-Littlefield Fire Chief Jeff Hunt said.
Both the Beaver Dam-Littlefield and St. George fire departments were alerted to the blaze and responded accordingly. The response was delayed by the stop-and-go traffic the fire was causing as motorists moved around it.
The motorhome, which had an estimated value of $700,000, plus a four-door pickup truck, were total losses, Hunt said. The only thing that didn’t get torched was a RZR utility vehicle towed behind the pickup.
