Vehicle Fire Blocks Thruway Access

Dunkirk, NY (WBEN) An RV fire blocked the 90 east between SIlver Creek and Dunkirk.

The Thruway Authority reported the fire around 10:15 a.m. Tuesday in Interstate 90's eastbound lanes between Exit 59 at Dunkirk and Exit 58 at Silver Creek.

Troopers say the RV is pulled over on the right shoulder in the town of Sheridan.
Police say fire crews are still at the scene dousing the smoldering RV. Troopers say no injuries have been reported.
The fire shut down both lanes for about an hour. The left lane has reopened while the right lane remains closed. Traffic is moving slowly in the area.
There's no word yet on what caused the fire.


Do you think some of the medical privacy of pilots and others who hold our lives in their hands should be sacrificed?
