No one was injured on Monday morning when a southbound motorhome caught fire on Interstate 77 on Brushy Mountain.
According to Virginia State Police Trooper C.L. Slaughter, the Texas driver and his brother got out safely after smelling smoke and pulling over on the shoulder at approximately the 56.8 mile marker.
All southbound traffic was blocked for about 25 minutes as firefighters battled the approximately 8:15 a.m. blaze, which sent a plume of black smoke soaring into the sky. After the fire was extinguished, the left lane was reopened and both lanes reopened around 9 a.m.
Slaughter didn’t know what caused the fire.
