Some rather unusual incidents caused delays on several highways around New England on Sunday afternoon.
Around 4 p.m., Massachusetts State Police sent out a tweet about a camper fire on Route 495 south in Plainville near the ramp to Route 1 south. The incident shut down the ramp for about 20 minutes while firefighters battled the flames.
