ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- A blown tire is being blamed for a fire over the weekend off I-15 in St. George.

A semi had a blowout and the tire apparently hit a light pole and knocked it to the ground. Live wires from the pole started the fire. Authorities say five vehicles received heat and smoke damage and a motor home caught fire.

Luckily no one was hurt.
