Vehicle fire destroys RV on Route 303 in Bremerton

The driver was not injured, officials said.

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.
