A motorhome valued at $450,000 went up in flames and was destroyed at a Florida RV dealership Wednesday afternoon (April 27), Pinellas Park, Fla., firefighters said.
It happened at Parliament Coach in the High Point area of Largo, the St. Petersburg Times reported. The driver of the 38-foot Blue Bird motorhome was traveling from Naples to New York when the coach started running rough north of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, officials said. He took the motorhome to the dealership at 3 p.m., where it started smoking, officials said.
Firefighters responded and were investigating the source of the smoke when flames erupted from the coach’s exhaust, officials said. The vehicle was reportedly a total loss. No one was injured.
