RV fire backs up traffic on Interstate 20 through Oxford-Anniston


A fire on Interstate 20 east of Oxford burns around 10:30 Sunday morning.

If you're thinking of driving to Atlanta for Sunday shopping, or perhaps World Series Game 5, consider an alternative to Interstate 20 until about 2 p.m.

A Sunday morning fire on the freeway eastbound at Exit 191, just east of Oxford, backed up traffic for at least 6 miles.

It was best for any motorists who had the opportunity to take Highway 78 east to Heflin and pick up the interstate again in Cleburne County.

An RV caught fire around 10:30 a.m. and was destroyed.

The Oxford Fire Department was among rescue agencies responding to the scene.
