ERLANGER, Ky. - An Erlanger RV was completely destroyed after it caught fire early Monday morning.
Officials say an abandoned RV was dropped off on eastbound I-275 near the eight mile marker in Erlanger overnight. The suspect who left the RV on the interstate stripped it of its tires and valuables and then fled. Fire crews responded to the area around 2:45 a.m. for reports that it caught fire.
When firefighters arrived, they found the RV fully engulfed in flames. Authorities shut down the interstate to traffic until about 3:30 a.m. while they fought the blaze.
No one was injured in the fire, according to Erlanger Public Information Officer Steve Castor.
Officials say the RV is a total loss, however, they have not yet released the estimated cost of damage. Authorities removed the RV from the scene because it was a road hazard.
Investigators are following up to determine what led to the blaze. Officials are searching for the suspect who dropped off the RV and swiped the tires and other items.
If you have any information about the fire, call Erlanger police at (859) 727-7599.
