NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — An alert garbage truck driver dumped his load after it caught fire Monday morning.

It happened in the parking lot of some businesses off Hillsboro Pike in Green Hills, just south of the mall.

Firefighters told News 2 the load caught fire and that’s when the driver decided to dump it in an area with minimal impact to other drivers or the public.

The flames were 25 feet high at one point, according to firefighters, but crews quickly reduced the fire to a smoldering pile of trash.

No one was hurt and cleanup is underway.
