RV catches fire on I-95 in Warwick

West Bay

WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — A pillar of smoke could be seen Tuesday morning after an RV went up in flames on I-95 in Warwick.

Emergency crews responded to the area of Exit 8 just before 9 a.m. and arrived to find the vehicle fully engulfed.

Traffic was backed up for miles as a result, but fire officials say no one was hurt.

West Warwick Fire Chief Eric Norberg told 12 News the driver was heading to a nearby repair shop to address repair issues on the morning of the fire. When the driver noticed the RV was smoking, he was able to pull over and get out before it became engulfed in flames.

Chief Norberg says the older model RV is considered a total loss, and was eventually towed from the scene.

The state fire marshal is investigating.
