DUNCAN, Okla._

A Halliburton truck in Duncan turned into a ball of fire Saturday morning.

The semi, normally filled with cement, was empty when it suddenly caught fire while on the Highway 7 overpass between 6th and 7th Street.Firefighters said it took only a couple of minutes for the entire fiberglass cab to go up in flames.

The truck driver told firefighters he jumped out of the truck second he saw smoke coming from underneath the hood.

Firefighters believe the fire ignited after a flat tire caused one of the truck's  wheel's to spark. It was contained within minutes of firefighters arriving.
