There was a scary moment for hotel guests heading to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport when their transport van caught fire.

The Holiday Inn van was taking guests to the Twin Cities airport on Wednesday morning when it caught fire at West 82nd Street and I-35W.

Bloomington Fire Department shared pictures of its firefighters dousing the blaze.

"Everyone made it out safely  and were transported by a separate van," the fire department said, adding that there were no injuries as a result.

Judging by the writing on the van, the vehicle had come from the Holiday Inn Bloomington Airport South, which is located just off of I-35W at West 94th Street.

It's not been revealed how the fire started.

Bloomington firefighters were also called into action on Wednesday morning at the nearby Mall of America, where there was a report of an exterior sign catching fire.
