A Coca Cola truck caught fire while sitting in the parking lot of the Speedway gas station at 4th Street and Arendell Street in Morehead City Monday morning.

The Morehead City Fire contained and extinguished the blaze before it spread to nearby gas pumps. No injuries have been reported.

Capt. Tim Guthrie said the cab of the truck was fully involved when fire crews arrived on scene.


The truck’s trailer is intact, but appeared to have minor smoke damage.

One lane of Arendell was briefly closed, but traffic was not otherwise affected.

We have reached out to Coca Cola Consolidated, which bottles and delivers Coke products in our region, for comment.
