MONETTE, Ark. (AP) - Police in Monette say there were no injuries when a tractor-trailer rig exploded near City Hall in the northeastern Arkansas town.

Police officer Kevin Bond told KAIT-TV (http://bit.ly/1qmXuku ) that there were two explosions from the rig shortly after 10:30 p.m. Saturday. Police say both fuel tanks on the rig exploded, but the cause has not been determined.

Bond says the rig belongs to Adams Trucking of Piggott and was parked in Monette for the night. Officials with Adams Trucking did not immediately return a phone call Sunday seeking comment.

Online records indicate Adams Trucking is licensed to haul general freight including grain, feed, hay and farm supplies and does not carry hazardous materials.
