FORREST CITY, Ark. (WMC) - A tractor-trailer filled with cookie dough had a fiery spill on I-40 in Arkansas Thursday morning.

It happened around 2 a.m. near the 254-mile marker heading west from Bristow, Virginia.

Forrest City Fire Department says cookie dough was everywhere. Pictures the fire department shared to Facebook show the burnt truck and heap of dough spread across the roadway.

The driver of the tractor-trailer is OK. The fire department says he was able to detach the cargo from his cab before it was engulfed in flames.

Investigators believe the fire started due to the back brakes overheating and igniting the back end of the trailer

About 0200 this morning on I40 254MM WB. Cookie dough everywhere!!
