    A Winnebago caught fire early Wednesday morning, affecting VTA service from the San Jose Diridon Station.

    Firefighters made quick work of the fire at West San Carlos and McEvoy streets, but the recreational vehicle was a total loss. It was parked in a lot along with another Winnebago right next to an apartment construction site.

    No buildings caught fire and no one was hurt, but a column of thick black smoke could be easily seen from the nearby Highway 280 and 87 interchange.

    Meanwhile, VTA officials were forced to provide a bus bridge between the Fruitdale and Diridon stations. The lightrail service is said to be recovering from the earlier delays. 

    The fire department is investigating the cause of the fire.

    No further details were immediately available.
