Passenger van catches fire in Raymond

Posted: Updated:

A 12-person passenger van caught fire this morning, as the driver was on their way to work.

Raymond Fire Chief Jason Dolf says the driver reported seeing smoke and flames near the front of the van, with smoke making its way into the vehicle.

Dolf says the driver then pulled over into the New Star Convenience Store parking lot in Raymond, and the van went up in flames shortly after. 

Dolf says he believes seven people were in the van, but they all made it out safely. No one was injured.

Dolf says fire crews don't know what caused the fire. The Evansdale and Raymond Fire Departments responded, along with the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office.
