SERGEANT BLUFF | Several area law enforcement and rescue units responded to an RV fire on Interstate 29 south of the Sergeant Bluff rest area Monday afternoon. 

The call came shortly after 2 p.m. 

Maj. Todd Wieck with the Woodbury County Sheriff's Office said two people were in the RV headed northbound on Interstate 29 north of the Port Neal exit when another RV traveling behind them alerted them of the fire. Both were able to escape uninjured.

Wieck said they had been traveling to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. 

Law enforcement shut down the two northbound lanes of the interstate as fire crews battled the blaze. The RV was a total loss, Wieck said. 

Crews remained on site performing cleanup for several hours. One lane traveling northbound reopened at 3:30 p.m. It re-closed again briefly around 5:30 as a front-end loader and flatbed were brought on scene. 

The Sergeant Bluff and Salix fire departments, the Woodbury County Sheriff's Office and the Iowa Department of Transportation responded to the scene.
