WILLCOX — An RV caught fire Monday on I-10 near milepost 329. Although the occupants fled the vehicle after it was engulfed in flames, two individuals had to be flown from the scene.
According to a Department of Public Safety trooper, the right front tire of the vehicle blew and the driver pulled over. The trooper told the Range News that two older individuals were in the vehicle, a man and a woman.
The male subject’s hair was singed, and the female passenger broke her leg. Due to the fact that the individuals in the vehicle were so close to the fire, both received second-degree burns and were transported to the Phoenix Burn Center.
Willcox Fire, Sunsites-Pearce Fire, Benson Fire, Healthcare Innovations ambulance and Lifeline Ambulance responded to the incident.
