GUNTER, Texas -- Part of FM 121 was closed Tuesday after a trash truck caught fire.

The Tioga VFD was returning from another call when they saw a Waste Management truck on fire about 4 miles west of Gunter. As the truck pulled over, the truck started two grass fires.

No one was hurt, but in order to extinguish all the fires, the driver had to dump the load of trash on the westbound lane.
