HOLLYWOOD (CBSMiami) – A fiery scene unfolded Thursday morning in Hollywood as a garbage truck caught fire.
As a photographer was speaking with an eyewitness of the fire, the fire became more intense.
“Pretty much we were driving and we just saw him stop, it was leaking fire and he just, and we got out to help him, look, look, look!” said the witness, named Desiree.
A loud pop could be heard as the truck was engulfed in flames on Sheridan Street just east of Dixie Highway.
Witnesses said the driver was able to get out of the truck just in time.
