The volunteers of the Jasper Fire Department were called out of bed early on Tuesday morning to respond to the report of a tractor-trailer truck on fire at the Valero Truck Stop at the intersection of Highway 190 East and Houston Street.
The fire, which was contained to the cab and engine compartment of the truck, broke out shortly after 6:00 and was contained shortly after the firefighters arrived at the scene.
The truck, which was owned by Napco Trucking of Woodville, was destroyed. However, no injuries resulted from the incident.
