SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – An RV caught fire on Interstate 5 on Friday morning just south of the airport and lanes were blocked for about 90 minutes.

The smoke and debris from the fire caused the CHP to shut down the lanes south of the Airport Boulevard exit at about 10:10 a.m. Fire units from the airport and Sacramento Metro responded. The RV was completely destroyed by the blaze and the roadway was badly damaged, according to the CHP. Caltrans was called out to survey the damage.

The No. 1 left lane was reopened at 10:41 and all lanes were back open by 11:35 but traffic was moving very slowly in the area.

There was no information on what caused the fire or if anyone was injured.
