An 18-wheeler collided with a train in Cameron, Texas, on Tuesday morning, February 23, causing several fuel tank cars to catch fire, reports said.
Milam County Sheriff Chris White wrote on Facebook that the fire was “primarily petroleum,” and that there were no reports of chemical hazards.
Officials told local media that both the driver of the truck and the conductor of the train were uninjured.
Footage streamed live by Jenecia Durr shows the smoke from a distance as it filled the central Texas sky on Tuesday morning.
