Reports of a garbage truck on fire. The driver dumped the load into the street, to save the truck.  There was a large debris of garbage in the roadway on fire.
Emergency personnel were on scene quickly and was able to get the situation under control.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.
No injuries were reported.
When I was leaving the scene, they had a tractor getting ready to clean up the scene. So it should be cleared by now, if not then it should be shortly.
