Firefighters say a driver suffered only minor burns when his semi-truck caught fire on the highway Sunday afternoon.

It happened at about 1:40 p.m. on I-10 East near W.W. White.

Firefighters said the driver and his passenger had just gotten an oil change when they heard something wrong with the engine. When they pulled over, the truck caught fire. The driver suffered minor burns to his ankle, but his passenger was not injured at all. The truck was carrying home appliances which is what is believed to have held to stop the fire from spreading.

Firefighters are still investigating the cause at this time.
