VAN METER – There was quite the backup on I-80 eastbound Wednesday afternoon because of a vehicle fire.
 
A van caught fire while the people inside were driving, then they pulled over by the Van Meter exit and the whole thing burned.
 
On the side of the interstate, a shell of a vehicle is all that was left.
 
We’re told everybody inside got out okay, but we’re still waiting on more information and details on what caused the fire.
