Bryan Police say the owner of the RV was on Finfeather Road near Groesbeck Street when the vehicle caught fire.

Firefighters tell KBTX a candle inside of the RV caught a curtain on fire. The driver quickly attempted to pull off the road and ended up hitting several utility wires and snapping a power pole.

Bryan firefighters were able to extinguish the RV fire just before 5:00 p.m. along with a grass fire that was sparked by the accident.

The driver was not injured and no other vehicles were involved.

According to Bryan Texas Utilities, this incident has caused a power outage to a few hundred customers in the area. BTU crews were able to quickly restore power to most of those affected.
