LELAND, N.C. (WECT) - User-submitted video shows a recycling truck dump a pile of flaming materials on to the pavement near 1014 Grandiflora Drive in Leland.

One video, sent in by Felicia High, shows a recycling truck labeled “Pratt Industries Recycling Division” with flames billowing out. Then, the truck dumps the flaming materials onto the pavement.

A Town of Leland spokesperson confirmed that they were called to the fire at 9:15 a.m. on Tuesday, August 9. The fire was extinguished without any injuries, but the building’s windows were broken and three other cars were damaged by the fire.

The building in the video is the backside of a gas station convenience store, opposite from the gas pumps.
