Bainbridge Island man hurt after motor home burns on Highway 3
A Bainbridge Island man was injured and a 21-foot motor home destroyed by fire after the man tried to restart his stalled vehicle by pouring gas into the engine's carburetor.
The Washington State Patrol said the attempt to restart the 1976 Jambo motor home set it ablaze.
The motor home had been disabled at the Highway 3/Highway 303 interchange in Silverdale just before 8 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 22.
The motor home was a total loss, and was impounded by Silverdale Towing after the fire was extinguished.
The driver, Rodney James Taylor, 43, of Bainbridge Island, was treated at the scene by an aid crew.
