Bama Fan’s RV Goes Up In Flames Before Sugar Bowl, Tells Local News ‘Roll Tide’

This RV fire outside the Superdome went down Monday, just hours before the Sugar Bowl and the owner of the rig, a Bama fan, had one thing to say to local media: “Roll Tide.”

Not joking.

Fox 8 WVUE reports:

The New Orleans Fire Department arrived on scene and quickly extinguished the flames.

No one was injured, and the fan said despite the loss of her RV she will still be attending the game.

You have to respect the Bama RV owner kinda shrugging this off as part of owning a rig. Take the good with the bad, keep rolling down the road. Nbd, still have a Bama game to catch. This is a story I’d expect Bama news outlets would be all over trying to get the story of how the owner will be traveling to the natty.

That’s a story newsrooms will be chasing, or should be. I would.

Mary’s last RV burned to the ground, but Bama won…how will she get to Atlanta? Watch tonight at 10:30

Here's another shot of that RV fire across from the Dome.

The owner of the RV that caught fire in a lot across the the Superdome is an Alabama fan from Tuscaloosa. She says despite the fire that destroyed her travel trailer, she is going to be rolling with the Tide tonight. "These things happen," she said.
