ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Dodge Ram truck caught fire on the Albany bypass near the Jefferson street exit about 8:15 Thursday morning.

A unit from the Albany Fire Department was on scene quickly to extinguish the flames.

Traffic in the east bound lanes slowed down as firefighters put water on the fire, but the cause of the truck fire was not immediately clear.

Smoke could be seen almost a mile away, and it appeared the truck is a total loss.

WALB will update this story when new information becomes available.
