A road commission truck bursts into flames and it was caught on camera.

Emergency personnel were called to a truck fire east of Manistique on Wednesday.

Reports came in at 2:17 p.m. of a truck on fire on U.S.2 near River Road.

A Schoolcraft County road commission truck driver noticed a mechanical issue with the truck's braking system.

The driver pulled over and was able to exit the vehicle before it started on fire.

A Manistique firefighter said the fire was extinguished in about 45 minutes, but crews remained on scene directing traffic until the burnt truck was able to be towed away.

No injuries were reported.
