The cement truck caught on fire and filled the Cheshire Road area just north of Allendale Shopping Center with smoke.
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A cement truck burst into flames on Cheshire Road on Tuesday morning filling the street with smoke.

Geoff Gladu was visiting his brother's home when he said he saw a "big blast of fire" coming from the cement truck at about 10 a.m. He capture the flames and the smoke on film.

Gladu said it appeared that the smoke caused a minor collision as well between two cars. Both of those vehicles drove away from the scene, Gladu said.

The fire appeared to have gone out on its own. Firefighters arrived shortly afterward and by about 10:30 a.m., the Fire Department had left the scene.


It does not appear that there were any injuries.
