Truck fire blocks 62/82 Monday evening

Posted: Updated:

A semi truck fire on U.S. 62/82 near the Hockley-Lubbock County line blocked part of the highway for nearly an hour Monday evening.

The flames overtook the entire empty box truck on the eastbound side of the highway. No one was hurt. A passerby helped the driver out of the cab.

The driver told first responders it could have been sparked by the tires. The smoke plume was visible from Milwaukee Avenue.
