Authorities say a semi driver nearly escaped as his cab went up in flames. 

It happened about 7:16 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 12 on US-10 in Sanford.

Jerome Township Fire Chief Bob McNett said the semi driver was heading north on Meridian Road, turning onto the eastbound US-10 on ramp when the cab began filling with smoke.

McNett said the driver jumped free as the cab erupted in flames.

The semi was pulling an empty cattle trailer which was engulfed by time firefighters arrived, McNett said. 

Luckily, no one was hurt.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
