LAWTON,Okla_Four large cardboard bales being trucked to Lawton's Republic Paperboard Plant caught fire Tuesday night on Northwest 82nd Street and Cache Road.

The truck driver disconnected the cab from the trailer once he noticed the fire and called for help.

Firefighters quickly put the fire out but part of 82nd Street was shut down for about an hour while crews removed the burned bales. No one was hurt.
