Fire torches motorhome on Menge Avenue

PASS CHRISTIAN, MS (WLOX) - There was a scary sight on Menge Avenue this afternoon.  Flames ate through a motorhome as it rolled through the north end of Pass Christian.

Harrison County's fire chief Pat Sullivan said one person was in the motorhome when it was consumed by the fire.  No word on his condition.

Apparently, a heater inside the motorhome was running.  When it tipped over, it caught some furniture on fire.  That fire quickly spread, torching just about everything inside and outside the vehicle.

Traffic on Menge Avenue was blocked for more than an hour.  Menge Avenue reopened around 2:45.
