Minden Fire Department was dispatched to Love's Travel Stops near Interstate 20 around 11:30 a.m., Monday to extinguish a transport truck fire.

Capt. Guy Mandino says the transport truck was filled with elevated temperature molten resin.

"They had overfilled the truck and the product was between an inner liner and an outer liner," Mandino said. "It was smoldering and smoking, not really burning. We put some water between the liners and put it right out."

Mandino said that while the product was flammable, it was not hazardous; however, to "be on the safe side, we called the state police hazardous investigator."
