Late afternoon on 7-5-11, a diesel powered motor-home exploded into flames, closing Hwy 101 along a wooded area just north of the entrance to the Port of Shelton (Sanderson Field). The damage to the vehicle was total along with a late model towed vehicle. Fire District 11 Chief Bruce Selleg stated the cause of the fire has yet to be determined but there were no injuries and the occupants escaped unharmed. He added the fuel tanks (in the forward part of the vehicle) were not compromised by the fire. When asked for this information, one District 5 fire fighter erroneously opined federal HIPPA regulations prevented the district from answering such questions. His Chief (McKern) called to say better instructions on District Policy with respect to such general information would be provided.
