RV Bursts Into Flames On Southbound Hwy 101 Near SFO

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) -- CHP and fire crews were responding to an RV fire on southbound Highway 101 near San Francisco International Airport Friday afternoon.

CHP first received reports of a vehicle on fire at about 2:45 p.m. Friday. The recreational vehicle was pulled over to the side of the freeway on southbound 101 but was still blocking traffic in the far right lane, according to CHP.

Twitter user Richard Hayes posted a photo and video of the vehicle engulfed in flames as he traveled to the airport.

Authorities responded to the scene. The fire was extinguished by about 3:15 p.m. While there were no reports of injuries, though the fire was slowing traffic.

Later video shared on social media showed CHP, fire and police units on the scene with the fire out. The blaze had left the front end of the vehicle almost completely destroyed with only the frame still visible.

The lanes were cleaned and reopened by 4:37 p.m., according to the CHP.
