Thousands of Sunday travelers were stopped for miles as firefighters were called to a vehicle fire on the highway 20 bypass.

The call about the fire in the westbound lane came in around 1:30 pm Sunday.

According to the Elkhart Truth, no one was reported to be in the van at the time of the fire and the owner of the van was not on the scene when the Baugo Township Fire Department arrived.

Fire crews extinguished the fire, but the incident caused plenty of headaches for drivers.

We thank the many of you at home who sent us photos and video from the scene.

The cause of the fire is unknown.
