PORTLAND - A California couple and several children were not injured after their motorhome burst into flames. <o:p></o:p>
It happened Sunday at Southeast Powell Boulevard and 99th Avenue. The parents say they were on their way from Palm Springs to Canada with several children. <o:p></o:p>
"It was burning out the back. Thank God we got the kids out. We have 10 kids. Four of our own and six of our friends," said owner Bob Finegan.<o:p></o:p>
With 120 gallons of furl and a propane tank, firefighters had to act quickly. All lanes of Powell Boulevard were closed until the fire was out. <o:p></o:p>
The owners say the motorhome was worth $450,000. They say they do have insurance. <o:p></o:p>
