I came across this truck fire today (about 6 p.m.) on the way home from Atlanta, southbound in Interstate 75, near exit 228 in Stockbridge. There appeared to be no injuries. But what’s crazy is that while firefighters were extinguishing the blaze, something inside the truck exploded like fireworks (see below). The truck was pulling a trailer owned by Ira Higdon grocery stores, based in Cairo, Ga.
Luckily, I was able to get in front of the truck before the blocked off the interstate, I can only imagine how far this backed traffic up. I’m just glad no one was injured.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that NBC News picked up my photo:
