BLACKWELL, Okla. (KFOR) - It was an inferno on the interstate.

A big rig driver had just pulled into a Welcome Center off Interstate 35 near Blackwell when he thought someone rammed into him.

"Well, I'm sitting in the back of my truck and it felt like somebody hit my truck, but what it really was, was this RV exploding," said Josh Hammitt.

It's not yet clear what caused the flames, but everybody was able to make it out safely.

Hammitt said crews were out there for a while trying to clean it all up.
