A fire engulfed a white RV traveling southbound on Route 303 in Bremerton on Monday afternoon.
Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue crews responded at 1:45 p.m., spokesperson Ileana LiMarzi said. The driver was able to escape the vehicle safely.
By 2:20 p.m. firefighters were hosing down what remained of the vehicle and sweeping up debris.
A witness – an employee at the nearby Meineke Car Care Center – said the driver, a male, ran toward the auto repair shop asking for a fire extinguisher. The flames were already too severe to be put out with an extinguisher, the employee said.
“We felt the heat in here,” he said.
