Officers said one of the tractor-trailer was carrying a load of pallets.

One of the trucks involved drifted off the highway and caught fire. The fire spread to the other truck and surrounding brush.

Luckily, crews were able to contain most of the fire’s damage to one truck.

Consequently, emergency responders took one driver to the hospital with non-fatal injuries.
