CAMPTI, LA (KSLA) - Natchitoches Fire District 9 firefighters were called out overnight to douse a truck fire.

They were dispatched to a field in the 600 block of Louisiana Highway 486 in Campti at 12:02 a.m. Sept. 21. Fire units arrived about 6 minutes later to find a Peterbilt fully involved in flames.

The truck's owner told firefighters that barking dogs awakened him to find the truck he recently bought was afire, says a post on the fire district's Facebook page.

The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
