Fortunately, no injuries were reported.

The incident occurred around 6 a.m. as commuters were making their way to work. Osnaburg Township Fire Department responded to the blaze.

As the flames filled the sky, authorities took swift action to secure the area and ensure the safety of all individuals in the vicinity. The Hazmat team was called in as a precautionary measure due to the potential presence of hazardous materials within the truck.
