PARLEY'S CANYON -- An RV fire caused big delays for drivers in Parley's Canyon Friday evening.

Utah Highway Patrol troopers say the RV was traveling eastbound on Interstate 80 Friday evening when it suddenly caught fire near mile marker 138.

No one was injured, but by the time fire crews arrived the RV was nearly a total loss.

Video shot by a witness shows how the fire spread along a trail of gasoline along the side of the freeway.

At one point, only lane of traffic was getting through on eastbound I-80. All lanes are now open.

Fire investigators are not sure if the fire was caused by a brake problem or a gas tank malfunction.
