Truck caught on fire after picking up recyclables
An ABC Recycling truck caught on fire after picking up recyclables Monday.
Driver Michael Hanten was driving his normal card board recycling route in North Platte when he noticed smoke coming from the back of the truck.
Hanten pulled over next to D'Leon's Mexican Food Restaurant on Rodeo Road and dumped the trash out of the hopper onto the ground. The recyclables caught on fire and burned the back of the truck including the back tires.
No one was harmed.
ABC Recycling says they are investigating the situation.
