Truck hauling fertilizer catches fire near school, students safe
CORDOVA, TN (WMC) - A pickup truck caught fire outside First Assembly Christian School in Cordova, Tennessee.
Memphis Fire Department says a 50 gallon container of pesticide on board caught fire. They believe an electrical spark started the fire.
The school did not go on lockdown, and no students were in danger.
Firefighters say they were worried about chemicals possibly leaking into a nearby drain, but that did not happen and the fire was successfully controlled.
