U-Haul fire slows traffic on Interstate 75 South
A U-Haul truck headed south on Interstate 75 erupted in flames just before 10:30 a.m. Monday.
The moving truck made it just inside Peach County before pulling off the highway.
Fire engines from Byron, Peach County and Macon-Bibb County responded.
Light gray smoke rose into the air as firefighters extinguished the flames, which destroyed the engine and cab of the truck.
Byron Fire Chief J.D. Mosby said no injuries were reported.
“Mostly it was the cab that was on fire,” Mosby said.
Traffic backed up for about two miles as fire trucks and patrol cars were parked in the right two lanes of the highway.
The driver appeared to be OK and was talking to first responders.
He said the truck contained family items, Mosby said.
