The tractor cab of an 18-wheeler caught fire at a truck stop in Vinton Thursday afternoon.
A KPLC viewer submitted a video of the fire.
Sgt. James Anderson, with Louisiana State Police Troop D, said that a trooper saw the 18-wheeler on fire next to the gas pumps at the Tobacco Plus and requested the fire department.
The store was evacuated as a precaution.
The Vinton Fire Department was able to contain the fire. The trailer, which was carrying wood, did not burn.
There were no injuries and no diesel leaked from the truck.
