DICKSON, TN (WSMV) -

It was a scary sight on eastbound Interstate 40 in Dickson when a truck erupted in flames at a rest stop.

Firefighters put out the blaze near mile marker 170 Tuesday morning.

The fire may have caused the front part of the truck to explode, which caught some nearby grass on fire.

It is not clear at this time what the truck was carrying.

No injuries were reported.
