Sparks from the rim of a wheel caused a tanker filled with unleaded gas to catch fire on State Highway 24 in Delta County. The incident occurred around 5 p.m. Wednesday near the Highway 24/Highway 154 intersection causing traffic to be diverted from the area.

Kerry Bell of Winnsboro, driver of the vehicle, was uninjured when  a tire blew and the rim created sparks causing the fire.

A truck from L3 of Greenville sprayed foam on the truck to extinguish the flames.
