Early this morning, a tanker truck caught fire at the station at 1792 F E Sellers Highway in Monticello. Officials said the tanker did not collide with the store. The fire ignited as the driver was offloading gas.

out by about 6:45 a.m.

The driver injured his leg in the incident, Summers said.

Cleanup is still ongoing and the highway was still closed as of noon.
