NO INJURIES -- Although no one was hurt Thursday afternoon when a northbound 18-wheeler caught fire, the incident did shut down the northbound lanes of the highway near Livingston for a time. Around 5 p.m. the driver of the truck noticed smoke coming from the truck's cab and pulled onto the right shoulder of U.S. 59 just north of the Loop 59 and Business 59 junction. In a short time, the truck became engulfed in flames. Livingston Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched along the officers from the Texas Highway Patrol. Northbound traffic on U.S. 59 was stopped as firefighters worked to extinguish the flames. While the rig was destroyed by the fire, the trailer and its contents did not appear to have been damaged. A heavy-duty wrecker was later called for cleanup and transport of the truck.
