Motor home catches fire near Vancouver waterfront

By , Columbian Assistant Metro Editor

A motor home caught fire, sending a plume of smoke into the sky, Tuesday afternoon while traveling on Columbia Way along the Vancouver waterfront.

The fire occurred at about 4 p.m. The owner of the motor home, Jill Sage, said she was driving down the road and smelled smoke. She and the other occupants got out of the vehicle before it burst into flames. No one was injured, she said.

Sage, of Vancouver, said she had to move into the motor home during the pandemic because of financial strain. Most of her possessions were inside, she said.

Firefighters extinguished the fire in about 10 minutes, and the cause was not determined at the time, according to a Vancouver Fire Department battalion chief.
