NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A reported explosion and RV fire in East Nashville has been ruled suspicious, according to investigators.
The call first came in around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday near the Shelby Park Greenway.
A witness told Nashville firefighters that a person was seen running away with his or her sleeve on fire. Other neighbors reported hearing an explosion.
However, fire crews have yet to confirm any injuries.
The owner of the RV had just purchased the vehicle over the weekend, and said it wasn’t connected to a power source. She had not yet purchased insurance.
“This is my neighborhood, so that means someone in my neighborhood is doing these kind of things,” she said.
Police blocked the road as Nashville Electric Service repaired a line damaged in the fire.
Samples from the fire were sent to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation for testing.
