Fire broke out in a trailer loaded with junk cars destined for a local recycling company Friday afternoon on State Highway 6 east of Waco.

The driver pulled over near the intersection of westbound Highway 6 and Elm Lake Road and detached the trailer after he spotted the flames.

After firefighters from Mart and Hallsburg doused the flames, the driver reconnected the trailer and resumed his trip.

No one was injured, but westbound traffic was temporarily restricted to one lane until first responders cleared the scene.
