Anderson County, Texas (KETK) — The Palestine Fire Department tells KETK the load of hay being hauled by an 18-wheeler has erupted in flames.
The semi is on Highway 19, two miles north of Montalba and that area of the highway is currently shut down.
The Montalba Fire Department is being assisted by the Tennessee Colony Fire Department and the Bradford Fire Department.
The Precinct Four Commissioners' Court has brought in a backhoe load the hay and try to save what they can of the 18-wheeler bed.
No injuries have been reported at this time, but KETK will update information as it becomes available.
