Not long after an Asheville man got out of his truck, the vehicle burst into flames. It happened about 7 p.m. Monday on Sweeten Creek Road.

Ron Stewart said he was headed home from a meeting when he saw smoke.

"It just got all smoky inside the cab. I pulled over but couldn't hardly see," Stewart said. "And they just drowned it."

It's not clear what started the fire, but Stewart said it may have been an animal that chewed some wires.
