A scary situation this afternoon at a gas station in Pelahatchie.
An 18- wheeler caught fire close to the diesel pumps.
It happened under the truck wash at a texaco gas station.
We're told the fire started in the cab of the truck.
The driver says he was carrying golf and shopping cart wheels.
He says he was coming from Texas and was heading to Virginia when he decided to wash the truck.
Shortly after stopping, and hearing a loud "pop," the driver tells us he discovered the fire.
