JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — A truck caught fire Tuesday morning outside a business on Woodrow Wilson.

The truck caught fire outside of the Newman Dental Care. The office manger told WJTV that the vehicle started smoking and then it exploded. The fire started, and part of the back of the building was also damaged.

Cleotha Sanders of the Jackson Fire Department said the vehicle owner had work done on his truck recently, and oil was leaking. He believes that is what cause the explosion.

We’re told that no one was hurt.
