RV fire kills one, leaves another badly burned

A fast moving fire in an RV led to one man being killed and another man being seriously injured in Phoenix yesterday. According to an AZFamily.com report, the men were test driving the RV shortly after making some repairs to the vehicle when they reportedly heard an explosion. After which, the RV quickly burst into flames.

First responders encountered the vehicle near 27th and Northern Avenues. They found one man standing outside the RV (which was fully engulfed in flames) who had severe burns. The man told firefighters that another man was still inside. The firefighters tried to rescue the man trapped in the RV, but they could not save him. He died due to smoke inhalation and severe burns. He was taken to a local hospital and is expected to survive.

Bystanders said that they had never seen anything like it.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, and preliminary reports have not yielded a definite cause for the explosion. However, the ultimate cause of the fire will have significant legal implications. If the fire was caused by faulty materials within the RV, it is possible that the manufacturer could be held liable. Manufacturers have a responsibility to provide products that will not put consumers in danger in the course of their normal use. In other words, if a consumer is operating a product according to its intended use, there is an expectation that the consumer will be safe from harm if he or she is using reasonable care.
