Motorhome destroyed by fire

A fully-engulfed motorhome blazing on the side of eastbound Interstate 80 near Auburn, California snarled traffic for hours Wednesday afternoon and ignited nearby vegetation.

Anders Corell and his wife were traveling back to their home in Littleton, Colo. when their motorhome caught fire around 2:30 p.m. they escaped the 33-foot Winnebego without injury.

Chief Ian Gow of the Placer Hills Fire Protection District said the fire appeared to have started in the engine.

"They're from Colorado and heading back home," Gow said. "They just had the engine overhauled in Oakland yesterday."

The Fire Department was able to unhitch the couple's towed before it was damaged.
