SOUTH DAYTONA, Fla. -

Authorities are investigating what caused a Jagermeister tractor-trailer to ignite at a Volusia County business on Friday.

Volusia County Fire Rescue said the cab of a semi-truck caught fire at the A Place for Your Stuff Storage parking lot on Nova Road and Reed Canal Road in South Daytona just before 9 a.m.

The fire was believed to have started in the refrigeration unit of the truck, which is owned by Sealion Trucking of Port Orange.

The driver said he was sitting in the cab of the truck awaiting instructions for his next job when he heard a loud pop and felt heat.

He said he had just enough time to jump out of the cab and move a nearby vehicle, before the truck was fully engulfed, according to South Daytona fire officials.

The Jagermeister truck, parked next to the burned truck, also caught fire and was partially damaged.

No injuries were reported.
