Truck / Camper Fire on I-10

Just seen this on the internet news. Can't tell exactly what kind of rig it is, but almost looks like a Puma. Hope they're all right. Wondering if it was a forum member. Can't find any other details on it yet, so don't know the cause.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

I think you are right about the puma. I blew up the pic and that's what it looks like it says. I hope they are ok. Money can replace the rest. Looks like it could have been the truck caught first looking at the damage.

kplctv.com has a couple of photos, looks like the truck caught fire, then moved to the RV.

Yep, and definitely a Puma:

Looking at the first picture wmtire posted, fire's in the rear of the truck. Kind of weird. Curious what could've started that one.

Could have even been the driver throwing a cigarette out the window and igniting sloshing gas in the bed of the truck. I sold a truck to someone who did that once and it melted my truck,,,,,,BEFORE he paid me in full for the purchase.
