The truck driver
said he suspected his truck was on fire a few blocks from where he pulled
over. The truck's load of trash was burning, so the driver dumped it in a
parking lot. Fire Marshal Johnny Zackary said it's standard practice to do so if that situation arises.
They called 911 and the
Longview Fire Department extinguished the fire before it spread. There was
minimum damage to the truck.
No one was injured and
the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
