LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - Fire crews responded to an 18-wheeler truck catching on fire today.

The driver was parked at a business off Santa Maria, on the city's west side. He said his truck wouldn't start and then he smelled a burning smell, so he went inside the business.

"I was gonna go in my truck and we went inside the office," said the truck driver. "My truck wouldn't start and the next thing I know, that guy next to me's saying 'Your truck's on fire!'"

The fire was quickly put out. Nobody was injured.
