REYNO, Ark. (AP) - A tractor-trailer rig carrying ammonia nitrate caught fire and burned in northeast Arkansas, forcing the evacuation of homes for about a half-mile around the fire near the town of Reyno.

Randolph County Office of Emergency Services Coordinator Bo Graham says the fire was put out Tuesday afternoon and there are no injuries.

The number of people forced to leave their homes or businesses was not immediately known.

Graham says the brakes on the trucks caught fire as the truck traveled on Highway 67.
