Fire prompts trash truck to dump load behind Longview Hastings

A trash truck dumped a load of trash behind a Longview business because of a fire in the bin of the truck.

The driver of the Allied Waste Services truck dumped his load in the parking lot behind the Hastings on Loop 281 in Longview, after noticing a fire in the trash bin of his truck.

Once oxygen got to the small fire, it flamed up quite a bit and Longview fire crews were called to the scene as well as HAZMAT crews.

Crews were able to put the fire out pretty quickly and now remain on the scene cleaning up the large load of trash that was dumped.

It does not look to be a environmental hazard and no one was hurt in the fire. No buildings were threatened by the blaze.
