Truck Hauling Horses Catches Fire

Some scary moments on Paris Pike Sunday evening as a truck pulling a horse trailer catches fire.

It happened at the intersection of Paris Pike and Iron Works just after 8 o'clock Sunday night.

Witnesses say the engine of the truck was engulfed in flame and the driver was quickly working to unload the eight horses on board the trailer.

Fortunately, there were other horse enthusiasts traveling that same road as they had just left a polo tournament at the Kentucky Horse Park.

All of the horses were safely unloaded and reloaded onto another horse trailer. No one was injured in the fire. it's not known how that fire started.
