No one was hurt, but the Alpha and Omega Transportation Company's truck was a total loss. The fire forced the temporary closure of the eastbound lanes on I-40. A Cocke County Fire Department spokesman said the fire was a result of a mechanical malfunction. The spokesman valued the truck and its contents at between $100,000 and $200,000.
