A 10-wheeler truck caught fire along the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) Wednesday morning, causing heavy traffic in the area.

The truck (DVW 866), driven by Danilo Sabio, caught fire along the northbound lane of NLEx near Balagtas exit.

Sabio said he first heard an explosion from the truck's engine compartment. He said the engine was already in flames when he and his companion Nomerto Mete got off the truck.

Sabio suspects that faulty electrical wiring triggered the blaze.
