Roads closed as motorhome catches fire in West Mackay


A motorhome has gone up in flames in West Mackay, causing black smoke to blanket the city.

Three firefighter crews were called to Webberly Street at around 11:20am, following reports the recreational vehicle was engulfed in flames.

They managed to suppress the fire within ten minutes.

Paramedics were put on standby, but it's not believed anyone is injured.

A Queensland Fire and Emergency Services spokesperson says they may struggle to piece together how the fire started because the damage is so bad.

Police closed Webberly Street and part of Nebo Road because some traffic lights weren't working.

The roads have since reopened and traffic lights have been restored. 

Detectives are on site and a crime scene has been set up.
