Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

A driver is safe after his semi-truck caught fire Friday evening. 

Crews responded to I-44 near the 21st Street exit around 5:30 p.m. to find that the truck was shooting smoke nearly 100 feet in the air. 

The driver told firefighters that he had a mechanical issue in his cab and pulled over. 

He said he noticed a glow from the dash and once he got out of the truck, saw that it was on fire. 

Firefighters say the tractor trailer is a total loss.

Reports say there was a diesel leak from the cab that the hazardous material team is taking care of. 

No injuries were reported.
