Semi-truck catches fire in Norfolk

NORFOLK -- A semi-truck caught fire suddenly in Norfolk, Saturday evening.

The driver said he had just picked it up from a repair and was driving when a car honked at him, waving him down. The driver got out of his truck, saw the hood was on fire, and tried to use a fire extinguisher on it.

When the fire continued to get worse and even broke his windshield, he called local authorities. The Norfolk Fire Department put out the fire within ten minutes. Police shut down Pasewalk Avenue while the scene died down. 

No one was injured, according to authorities.
