Firefighters extinguished flames in an airport shuttle van on Wednesday morning, but fortunately, nobody was injured.

The Bloomington Fire Department tweeted pictures that showed smoke billowing out of the van as firefighters sprayed it with water.


The department said the van caught fire at W. 82nd Street and I-35W while on the way to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

The van was fully occupied, but everyone made it out safely, the department said. They were then transported by a separate van.

Nobody was injured.

It's unclear how the fire started.
