A big rig caught fire late Wednesday night on the Southwest Freeway, destroying its load of oysters. The driver reports he ran over a mattress, which became stuck under the rig, and the friction started the fire, which spread to the back.

The 18-wheeler was loaded with oysters, which were impacted by the blaze. The driver believes the flames ruined the entire shipment.

Fortunately, no one was hurt.
