Oxygen tanks explode inside RV near Newton

By Joe Cadotte. CREATED Jul 16, 2014

Fire tore through an RV along K-15 north of Newton Wednesday morning.

Our news partners at KWCH channel 12 reports it happened under the I-135 overpass.

The Harvey County Sheriff’s Office says traffic was diverted on K-15 and northbound traffic was shut down on I-135 while crews put the fire out.

The fire was tougher than usual because oxygen tanks inside the RV were exploding.

There are no reports of injuries.
