RV destroyed by fire in Brown County

A Florida man’s RV was destroyed Tuesday afternoon in Brown County.

Curt Durnil, spokesman for the Indiana State Police, says that just before 4 p.m., the Brown County 911 Center received numerous calls about an user29383-1467151724-media1RV traveling east on State Road 46 near Green Valley Road. Those calls noted smoke coming from the rear of the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle, Mark Laffoon, of Davenport, FL, reportedly told troopers that the vehicle lost power while driving, but he was able to pull into an empty parking lot. Once Laffoon exited the RV, he noticed flames coming from near the engine area.
