Interstate 81 is back open after an R-V caught fire and shut down part of the highway.

State police say a husband, wife and three dogs where heading southbound near Christiansburg when the engine caught fire.

The couple and their pets got out of the R-V no problem.

Troopers shut down that part of the highway for about an hour and a half.

They took the couple to a motel after cleaning up the scene.
