Update: Truck Catches on Fire, HAZMAT teams respond

KEEZLETOWN, Va. (WHSV) -- Crews responded around 2:30 p.m. on July 6, when the call came in.

Fortunately, we're told no one was inside the truck when it was burning.

At one point, HAZMAT crews were called to help with the scene.
The fire is out now and the driver is okay. He said he noticed something on the truck was catching fire, that's when he pulled over.

There were witnesses who saw the truck go up in flames too.

"My car caught on fire and that went out easy, this one...mine can't touch it. It's a horrible feeling knowing that you can lose your entire vehicle, in this case, theirs is completely gone," said neighbor Chris Shifflett.
