Publix evacuated after delivery trucks catch fire

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — A Publix was evacuated after a Coca-Cola delivery truck caught fire Tuesday behind the store in Atlanta, DeKalb County fire Capt. Dion Bentley said.

Bentley said the fire did not spread to the Publix, located in the 2100 block of Henderson Mill Road.

The truck was parked at the loading dock when it caught fire and spread to another tractor-trailer, Bentley said.


No one was injured.

The cause of the fire has not been released, but the fire appears to have started in the cab of the truck and spread to a mostly empty trailer, according to DeKalb Fire officials.

The Publix has since reopened.
