BROOKINGS, S.D. - A camper fire momentarily shut down southbound traffic on Interstate 29 just north of Brookings Friday.
South Dakota Highway Patrol said the driver of a Dodge Ram 2500, headed southbound on I-29, noticed his fifth-wheel camper was on fire around 12:30 p.m.
The driver was able to disconnect the camper from his pickup. Despite firefighters being able to extinguish the fire, the camper was destroyed.
Both southbound lanes were closed for a short period while crews responded to the fire. Both lanes are now open.
At this time, authorities haven't released the cause of the fire.
