There are still major delays on southbound Interstate 15 south of Las Vegas hours after a recreational vehicle attached to a truck caught fire Monday afternoon.

Two lanes near the St. Rose Parkway exit had reopened as of 2:05 p.m., although the Regional Transportation Commission was still warning drivers of long delays.

The RV fire, reported just after 12:15 p.m., initially had shut down all southbound traffic for nearly two hours.

According to the Clark County Fire Department, the flames had spread to the truck by the time crews had arrived at the scene, but the department was able to quickly extinguish the fire.

No one was injured, the department said.

It was not immediately known what caused the blaze.

The Nevada Highway Patrol also responded to the scene to assist with traffic.
