HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

The trash a Waste Management truck was hauling caught fire Friday afternoon.

According to Harrison County Fire Chief Pat Sullivan, the driver noticed smoke pouring from the back of the truck 10 or 15 minutes after picking up a load and pulled over near the intersection of Highway 53 and Doc Lizana Road.

When crews with the Harrison County Fire Service and Lizana Volunteer Fire Department arrived, the driver dumped the load and firefighters quickly extinguished the flames with minimal damage to the truck.
